I Like You is sort of a instructional book for entertaining and cookbook. I say sort of because it's so frickin' weird. It's tagline is Hospitality Under the Influence. I'd say there was some partaking of chemicals when writing this one.You might not want to leave this one sitting around for small children to pick up, unless you want to explain to them what a bong is.
Amy offers suggestions for entertaining in all kinds of situations for all kinds of people: blind dates, alcoholics, children, sick people, the elderly, lumberjacks. She gives advice on how to set the mood, what to serve, how to get out various stains, how to get guests to give you money, etc.
While reading I Like You, I thought some of it was useful and sensible. Then she'd say something so off the wall, I'd question everything I just read. It had the effect of making it difficult to decide if she's being serious or not. Anyway, I've read that the recipes are actually quite good. I haven't tried any yet. The pictures are less than appetizing. Some of them remind me of my Mom's old cookbooks from the seventies, kind of dark and photographed in that weird orangey light. I think that's the look she was going for though.
So, I don't know. If you are in the mood for a humourous look at entertaining, I Like You might be worth picking up but I wouldn't make it my only book on the topic. Unless your guests really like crafts made from pantyhose.
I bought I Like You from a discount site.
