Does anyone have any websites/books/resources for learning to cook ahead of time when entertaining? For example, i love making a risotto when we entertain but it's hard making it a a minute cause what if my guests are late? Even if they're not i spend the first 45 minutes of our dinner cooking instead of entertaining them... I'd like to learn how to parcook a risotto and then finish it when my guests are ready. Ditto for things like a roast...how do restaurants hold a roast for 6 hours of service? warming tray or in the fridge? Would love anyone's input on this topic. thanks!
(Oh, and $10 off your order of $50 or more in the Food52 Shop, too.)
