“Best Apps for Planning Parties: I’ve been using this app since it first came out because I loved the book it’s based on. When I’m getting ready for a party, it’s really helpful after I know my menu. I go to the wine store and use it to choose the different wines to go with my courses. I’m not a big wine expert, but it always helps me to pick the right type of wine to go with my recipes. It’s so easy to use. And if you have a bottle of wine that someone has given to you, it can help you figure out what food to serve with it. [Four Stars]”
