Mehr über den Autor
Anyone who knows anything about catering knows that presentation is just as important as the food. Enter Denise Vivaldo, a versatile culinary pro who has catered over 10,000 parties. Her last book, The Entertaining Encyclopedia, gave us menus and recipes for just about every conceivable occasion. Instead of a new collection of recipes, Perfect Table Settings features hundreds of easy, creative ideas for complementary table arrangements, and comprehensive, step-by-step color photos of how to achieve just about any napkin fold you have ever seen -- from basic to vaguely origami. This book is a must for anyone looking to give their dining table a professional look -- without the angst, and without spending a fortune.--Peggy Fallon"Project Foodie" (12/03/2010)

This book is a must for anyone who wants to add that special touch to their dining with a wildly impressive table setting.
However, my one gripe with the book is the orientation of the accompanying photographs. The photos are placed as if you (the reader) are watching someone seated across from you, rather than watching someone seated to the right or left of you. (If you look closely, the hands in the photos are at the top not at the bottom. ) In other words, the photos are upside-down from the reader's perspective. Therefore it becomes confusing when the instructions say to "fold left flap over to the right flap, keeping the point towards you" and the picture shows the opposite and inverted.
Luckily I can read print that is upside down and backwards. But for those who cannot do that, the choice is to either constantly turn the book upside down or to completely ignore the photos.
Hopefully, the publisher will take note of this for future instructional books.
