One of the most important parts of any holiday party is the food and drink. This is where you'll want to start! The time of the party will determine what and how much food you are going to serve. The Bing Food & Drink app can help make food and drink planning a little easier. It has a huge catalog of recipes, helps you pick wine and cocktails, has a meal planner and a shopping list tool! Using your Surface tablet, you can even upload some of your own recipes you may find around the web or have saved in your recipe box.
