“Entertaining is at the core of the Hammertown style,” writes Joan Osofsky, who founded the first of three Hammertown Barn stores (Pine Plains, Rhinebeck, and Great Barrington) in 1985. Osofsky and her Love Where You Live co-author Abby Adams have created a new book that’s guaranteed to make you want to throw a party. Cycling through the seasons with chapter titles such as “A Warm Dinner for a Cold Night,” “A Perfect Day for a Picnic,” and “Lunch in the Orchard,” Entertaining in the Country combines inspired meal menus with the style and surround of gracious country living. Striking photos by John Gruen accent the festive colors of seasonal cooking, highlighting fresh-from-the-farmers-market ingredients, mouthwatering finished dishes, and dreamy table settings for dining with friends in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings. Bon appetit!
