A few weeks ago, we wrote a review of Handmade Gatherings by Ashley English (and also picked Ashley’s brain for her best tips on communal entertaining).
As The Factory continues to grow and host events, we openly welcome her simple approaches to creating an experience through collective, potluck meals. Now, we want to share those inspirations and insights with one of our lucky readers.
For a chance to win a copy of Ashley’s newest book, leave a comment with your most famous (or infamous) tip for entertaining.
We will put the best stories in a hat, draw a name randomly, and announce a winner this Wednesday, July 23.
*No previous winners, employees, friends, and family of Alabama Chanin are eligible for this giveaway.
Handmade Gatherings: Recipes & Crafts for Seasonal Celebrations & Potluck Parties, by Ashley English, is published by Roost Books, Boston.
**Thanks to everyone who shared tips for entertaining.
And the winner – from the draw of a hat – is Rhea.
Congratulations, Rhea, on winning our extra copy of Handmade Gatherings.
We hope you all find the tips and stories below as compelling as we did. Happy reading (and entertaining)!
