With an elegant design, colorful illustrations, gorgeous photography, and a charismatic young couple, Jordan Mackay and Christie Dufault, writing friendly and helpful text, this title looks and feels like a gift and is filled with classic recipes and modern information for newlyweds. Jordan and Christie draw on their experience--he's a wine and spirits writer and she's a sommelier and instructor at the CIA in Greystone--to add contemporary topics to the mix, such as a focus on drinks, how to set up a home bar, and how to cook happily with your spouse and entertain family and friends. Besides a diverse array of 150 recipes for every occasion and taste, each chapter opens with a handful of prose recipes offering inspirational ideas for quick dishes--from smoothies and scrambles to crostini and sparkling drinks--and speak to contemporary cooks. Practical advice, like how to sharpen knives, take care of cutting boards, and store food in the freezer, and fun ideas like creating a music playlist for a dinner with friends are presented in short, easy-to-read sidebars throughout the front of the book.
