Susan Mason's Silver Service
"Savannah's top caterer, Susan Mason, works by the motto 'Never economize on luxury.'" -- Saveur magazine "After the lobster salad, Timothy Dalton leaned over . . . and said, I just realized that we're not on a movie set." --Susan Mason Beyond creating extraordinary wedding and private event spreads, Susan Mason has worked on over ten movies filmed in Savannah, supplying food for crews, catering private parties for stars, and"dressing" sets with food. These occasions offered her the opportunity to meet a variety of celebrities, who often request that she create private meals for them. Her catering is now in demand far from Savannah, desired by those who can afford to bring a bit of Southern hospitality to their private celebrations. Ms. Mason says her favorite celebrity client was Tom Hanks. After weeks of feeding the cast and crew of Forrest Gump, Mason was asked by Mr. Hanks to create a special dinner for his wife, Rita Wilson, on her birthday and to charter a yacht. A few years later, Wilson was quoted in a magazine as saying that evening was the most romantic thing her husband ever did for her. This is just one of many examples included in Susan Mason's Silver Service, demonstrating Mason's exquisite taste and inherent sense of style. Her suggestions for quality ingredients and stunning presentations are included in this gorgeous cookbook, full of more than eighty recipes, one hundred illustrations, quotes from celebrity clients, and humorous stories about catering for the rich and famous.

A Must for Elegant EntertainingUser Review - Overstock.com
Susan Mason has been Savannah's "go-to" caterer for as long as I have lived here, and her parties are legendary. Perfect attention to detail, delicious, elegant food beautifully presented, great staff -- she has it all. And her cookbook is fabulous. Everyone I know could hardly wait to buy it and cook from it. It has most of her signature dishes, many helpful tips, great photographs, and personality plus -- just like Ms. Mason. I highly recommend this book for people who'd like to entertain with a classy Southern flair. It would be a fantastic gift! ...
