'Top Chef''s Padma Lakshmi Has The Recipe For Effortless Summer Entertaining

For Padma Lakshmi, entertaining is a habit, so get like her. The model, host, and author is best known for her contributions to the hit Bravo cooking competition show Top Chef. So, it's no surprise that Etsy tapped her for the Etsy Edit that is the chef's kiss when it comes to hosting the summer get-togethers of our dreams.


The Taste the Nation host's biggest entertaining tip? "The most important thing when you're doing a party at home, whether it's for three people or 30, is to choose a menu that is forgiving, where 70 percent of the items are doable ahead of time like warming up a casserole dish in the oven or stovetop," Padma shares with Good Housekeeping. "People don't want to see the host completely stressed out. If you're having fun, they'll have fun and feel relaxed. It's never about the food or the objects on the table. It's about the audience, the environment you create and how people are feeling."

Vaxxed and waxed is the mantra of the season and as the world opens back up outside, we are also opening up our homes to invite friends and family to pull up, vibe and chill. From cookouts and outdoor barbecues to pool parties and picnics, the carefully curated collection has a little something from every kind of host. Check out some of our favorite artisan finds from Padma's collection edit below.
