Yes, there are some very good recipes in here but I was expecting a book dedicated to recipes for two people. This cookbook includes chapters such as Hosting Parties and Holidays. It's ok but not what I was looking for.
I bought this as a gift for couple who loves to cook together in the kitchen. They have already used it a couple times and said that they love the recipes in the book and have marked many that they plan on making in the future!
I bought this cookbook as part of a wedding gift. Before wrapping it, I started looking through the recipes and I found some great keepers! I'm not getting married, but I had to pick up a copy for myself as well. Lots of great suggestions for breakfast combinations and simple, easy to execute recipes.
THIS was a shower gift. Most couples have apartment things now a days, so money is most needed. I hate to just give a check so this book with a personal note written inside was said to personally have touched them.
I bought this for my husband as a wedding gift because he loves to cook, and I thought it would be fun to make some new meals together. Unfortunately, none of the recipes seem all that appealing to me and many of them require A LOT of work and are for more than 2 people. We have yet to make any recipe from this book, but have made dozens from the Cooking Light cookbooks we bought. I guess in the end I liked the idea of what I thought the book would be. It just wasn't that.
Got as a wedding gift and unfortunately the cover appeared to have slight water damage. Not so much that it was ruined and I still gave it as a gift because it was a last minute purchase, but would have wanted a replacement. Recipes looked tasty and easy enough for newlyweds, I liked the section about entertaining. It's definitely great if the couple has basic experience with cooking and pretty basic ingredient collection. I gave it as part of a themed gift along with some custom blended spices (because spices are expensive!) and the salt/pepper shakers from the couple's registry, but you could easily pair this with any other kitchen or food-related product for a cute, culinary themed gift. I actually liked the recipes and organization enough that I wish someone would have bought this for us when we were married!
Lovely idea of William Sonoma. As different couple newlyweds share with us their way to cook their favorite dishes, salads, soirees with friends or desserts. I like the book as perfect class of different views of how a couple can cook together and enjoy sharing by themselves or with others. The photographs are cosy as the atmosphere of each dish, i specially like its boundary with this light blue cloth.
A great find for a wedding gift for two whom really enjoy cooking together! Sure they will enjoy their gift!
