My parents used to entertain my father’s out-of-town business clients with preand (sometimes) post-dinner drinks and the occasional home-cooked meal. I’d take those opportunities to enlist one of my younger brothers to help spy on the “big people,” eavesdrop on grown-up conversations, and sneak a sip or two from the remains of an abandoned Manhattan.

Brooks Freelance stylist and culinary consultant Ashley R. Brooks loves a good dinner party (p. 68). But when she’s not the one hosting, she has trouble suppressing her inner restaurateur. “I’ve been in the food industry for more than 15 years, so it’s hard for me to be a guest at any event,” she says. “I usually end up serving, cleaning, or helping…
