I purchased a copy of her original "Entertaining" 30 years ago when she was still relatively unknown. It was probably 10 years after that purchase that I was sitting with a friend enjoying a pitcher of martinis on the deck, when he turned to me and said, "Have you heard of this woman, . . . Martha Stewart?" I think I was probably on my second or third martini at the time and my response was something akin to "HEARD of her?! I want to BE her in my next life!!" Little did either of us know then of the success Mrs. Stewart would achieve. A creative force in the domestic arts that to date is unparalleled.
If you can, get a copy of this new book. I do not think you will be disappointed.
