Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Popular Australian journalist and TV personality Deborah Hutton, of Australian Women's Weekly fame, hosted this charming "lifestyle" program, which aired over that country's Ten Network. Within the context of a weekly dinner party, Hutton joined forces with an impressive array of master chefs and show-business celebrities. Somehow, the party always managed to be a success -- and the food, of course, was terrific. The first 60-minute episode of Entertaining Friends was broadcast in Australia as a "special" on April 21, 2001.
