Stephanie Nass is a chef, influencer, and founder of the culinary lifestyle brand Chefanie. Her products are available on her website and at retailers worldwide, including Revolve and Goop. She regularly appears on TV, panels, and podcasts as a thought leader in the cooking and hosting space. Nass has been called the “Millennial Martha Stewart” and named one of the top 50 hosts in America. She is based in New York City.

Having thrown hundreds of parties for celebrities, royals, fashion brands, and a long list of family members, Nass understands what it takes to be a stellar hostess; indeed, she believes that hosting is an art form. If the definition of art is to please and instruct, there is no more literal art than a dinner party.

Swing By!: Entertaining Recipes and the New Art of Gathering A founder of her own culinary lifestyle brand, Chefanie, and a successful catering business, Nass is ready to share all she knows in this, her first book. Organized by type of party—standing soirees, seated suppers, outdoor dining, and holiday celebrations—the book features sixteen fun, festive, and original ideas for hosting, from a pizzeria-based pizza party with homemade rainbow cookies to a sunflower field luncheon, martini night, and an alpine lodge-inspired dinner.

Enhanced by Nass’s hand-painted menus and filled with recipes, checklists, affordable DIY tricks, flower arranging techniques, and the tablescapes for which she is known, Swing By! will delight and instruct readers eager to entertain.
