Cook and cookbook author Diane Phillips loves to cook and entertain, and both her books and cooking classes feature her as the “Diva of Do-Ahead.” These recipes are from a class she taught at the Great News! Cooking School in San Diego, California. The class included cocktail and hors d’oeuvre recipes for “A Do-Ahead Holiday Cocktail Party.” Other recipes were featured in November’s Traditional Home magazine.
Diane’s newest book, “Happy Holidays from the Diva of Do-Ahead,” published by Harvard Common Press, is available in bookstores and at Amazon.com. These recipes are adapted from the book and exclusive to Traditional Home Magazine.
