Wild Women Throw a Party

Wild Women Throw a Party

This book shows you how to party like it's 1929.

Chef and Texan Lynette Shirk tells you how to throw a party when you’ve outgrown the local dive bar and vodka scene.In her book Wild Women Throw a Party: 110 Original Recipes and Amazing Menus for Birthday Bashes, Power Showers, Poker Soirees, and Celebrations Galore, Shirk tells you how to create parties based on the lives and recipes of celebrity women.  The book has tongue-in-cheek ideas like Joan Crawford’s Mother’s Day “Mommy Dearest” breakfast and Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede.  She also tones it down, however, (probably for women who are little less wild than Joan was) with the Silver Screen Queens’ Oscar Party. Shirk has her culinary chops—she’s worked in kitchens from New York to San Francisco, but also seems to like to have fun—she gave it all up to live in Dallas and make coffee bean brittle.
