Esquire is a funny, informative, connected magazine that covers the interests of American men—all the interests of the American man: Politics, style, advice, women, health, eating and drinking, the most interesting people of our time. All that and it’s the most-honored monthly magazine in history.

GET INTIMATE, from Dinner Party… to After-Party • We cocoon when things get crazy. We hunker down. It’s only natural. The barrage of unsettling news over the past few years has gotten a lot of us longing for something settled. Entertaining at home has rarely been more attractive, because there is so much comfort in the communion of breaking bread and opening bottles with friends. With that in mind, what we offer here are some easy suggestions for bringing it all back home: Bowls of pasta that don’t require your traveling to Modena for a master class. A pantry full of aromatic spices that can give your cooking majestic sweep with nothing more than a shake. Rice perfumed by a whole fish. Crispy toasts overflowing with jammy tomatoes. A nightcap that will mellow everyone out. Whether you’re inviting over a rowdy entourage or lighting candles at the table for a Friday-night staycation for two, these are the things you’ll want to eat and drink as you shut out the world and dig in. So when do you want us to drop by?
