It’s springtime and thoughts of entertaining and enjoying the warmth of the sun and friends are dancing in our heads. To ensure you think of everything, and have some experts to inspire you, entertaining gurus Sebastien and Sheila Centner have put many of their ideas between the covers of EATertainment. Who is the dynamic duo behind this book? Sebastien is one of the top event and catering go-to guys in North America while Sheila adds her creative and savvy inspiration to these endeavours. Check them out at

Seb and Sheila have put as much thought into this EATertainment book as they do the events they plan. Yes, it has recipes but so much more. The book categorizes events into simple get-togethers, some requiring a little more planning, and then the ultimate soiree that needs more thought. Each suggested dinner/party comes with decorating ideas, bar suggestions and cocktail recipes, a count-down to the big day, and of course, recipes for 3-4 courses.

It’s spring time so to give you a glimpse into Seb and Sheila’s idea of a spring luncheon, they provide setting suggestions including tulips for the table and napkin ideas, a bar ready to accompany the spring menu with a recipe for Pink Lemonade Rose cocktail, what you should be doing for the three days leading up to the luncheon, and then canapes ideas, a spring pea soup recipe, oven-poached salmon with dill sauce and spicy ginger cookies…these and many more recipes are at your finger tips to ensure a light and fresh spring presentation.

Due to publisher restrictions, we couldn’t provide you with a recipe from the book, but the authors have kindly shared another spring idea…check out Melon Prosciutto Caprese Salad in our Recipe section. A perfect dish to start your dinner party on a fresh and lively note! Keep this recipe in your back pocket when melons are in season – there’s nothing like fresh ingredients right from the farmer’s market!
