According to marriage counselors, cooking together is one of the biggest complaints newlyweds bring to the table; with more than 80 recipes, this accessible book makes the kitchen a happy place for couples.
From the editor of Seattle Bride and one of the Northwest's up-and-coming chefs and food writers comes a cookbook for newlyweds aimed at helping couples forge good cooking habits that will last a lifetime. Offering more than 80 recipes that gradually increase in complexity, The Newlywed Kitchen serves as the building blocks for beginner cooks as well as a guide on how to happily and peacefully cook a meal together. The book is cleverly divided into categories such as 'Carry Me Over the Threshold Starters and Snacks,' 'Who Gets the Remote Control: Comforting Pastas for Lazy Nights In,' and 'Happily Ever After Desserts and Sweets' with plenty of mouth-watering pictures. Also includes stories from happily married foodies to inspire and guide newlyweds to a lifetime of delicious meals together.
"...while we learned long ago that the bulk of our present-buying dollars should be used for what's on the registry, we like to throw in a little something extra to make us feel better about how completely boring flatware and food processors are. That's why every lucky couple we see get hitched this year will be getting a copy of The Newlywed Kitchen ($23). This pretty little tome is chock full of honestly delicious recipes (we loved them when we were single) ranging in complexity from novice to Julia wanna-be - all perfectly proportioned for two." —Outblush
