An Affair with a House

A friend recently gave me a copy of Bunny Williams' AN AFFAIR WITH A HOUSE for my birthday and I love it! I gave a copy of the book to my mum (Dixie) for Mother's Day. 

The book now has a place of honor on my coffee table and I have browsed through the beautiful pages again and again. This is a great birthday or hostess gift. The home is not far from our family home in Litchfield County, CT.

Bunny and her husband entertain often and the book includes some of her favorite recipes.

Cheese Grits Souffle RECIPE

Artichoke Frittata RECIPE

Chicken Salad with Chutney RECIPE

For hors d'oeuvres assemble an assortment of cheeses, fruits, nuts and a fresh baguette
