“I love Holly’s new book. Smoke & Fire sizzles and delights with great recipes and chic ideas for relaxed outdoor entertaining.”
Colin Cowie, Style Impressario and CEO, Colin Cowie Celebrations

“My firm belief is that every really sexy party should have an element of danger, which is why cooking with fire is my kind of shindig.”
Julia Reed, Chef and author of Julia Reed’s South: Spirited Entertaining and High-Style Fun All Year Long

“This is gorgeously photographed, filled with menus from well-known chefs and creative ideas for casual outdoor affairs that include a Lobster Bake on the Atlantic shores, a Montana Fish and Rib Bake, a Cuban Night in a Vineyard, a New Orleans’ Shrimp Boil, and a Harvard Yale football Tailgate.”
Liz Smith, New York Social Diary

“Outdoor cooking is all about feeling close to nature, whether in the mountains, at the sea, or in the back woods…an outdoor fire makes food taste heartier, earthier, and more delicious. It’s also free-spirited entertaining at its most bohemian.”
Cristina Cuomo, Editor, Manhattan and Beach magazines

“Entertaining outdoors is my favorite way to have people over to my home: It’s casual, creates a family feeling no matter who I’m mixing up, and everyone arrives and leaves in a great, happy mood. Somehow, my recipes taste even better when I cook them on an outdoor flame and we eat them in the fresh air.”
Katie Lee, Cookbook Author, Television Food Critic, Cook, and Novelist

“This book is all about the party that everyone wants to be at.”
Ali Wentworth, Comedian and Author
