The health and economic benefits of cooking at home are numerous: you conrol the portions, it's considerably less expensive than dining out, and you know exactly what is going into your food (and your body). But have you noticed than most recipes and cookbooks (many of ours included) are tailored for at least four servings? There are a whole lot of people out there cooking for a family of two, and this, the latest entry in our Cooking for Two series, adds even more recipes and fresh meal ideas.
It is not a book for bachelors, nor is it simply our foolproof recipes halved or quartered to serve two. It is a collection of recipes that have been specifically tailored, tested, and tweaked to work perfectly for just two serving. The 2011 edition of Cooking for Two offers a wide range of meals, from Steak Tips with Mushroom-Onion Gravy and Batter-Fried Chicken to pasta favorites like Bolognese with Linguine and Arugula Pesto with Pasta, to vegetarian dishes including Tomato Ricotta Tart and Bean and Vegetable Tostadas.
You'll also find entire chapters on outdoor grilling and barbecuing, and slow-cooker meals, side dishes, and light and healthy meals (with included nutritional information).
An innovative and elegant solution to just-for-two cooking, Cooking for Two 2011 provides the recipes, tips, and techniques that will allow you to tailor your cooking for fully imagined meals without wasteful leftovers.
