As one of the culinary world’s ultimate entertainers, James Beard knew a thing or two about setting a table for a crowd. With the holiday season right around the corner, we’re here to remind you that cooking an unforgettable dinner in only an hour truly is possible. Give Mr. Beard’s very special steak dinner a whirl—his combination of good planning and deft execution lets you sit down with your guests in a flash. 

The main event is James Beard's steak au poivre flambé, which gets a flaming bath in Cognac before being served sizzling and tender. Beard recommends buttery galette potatoes and bright haricots verts to round out the menu. Get the recipes here:
