If cooking for someone is an act of love, then what better way for a newlywed couple to express their love than to cook with each other? Author Maria Zizka offers 100 recipes for classic and modern recipes to build a young couple's cooking repertoire. Couples will not only learn to cook as a team while creating meals to nourish themselves and friends and family but will master key culinary lessons in the process. Recipes such as Leek and Goat Cheese Tart and Spring Vegetable Curry with Rice Noodles are easy weeknight dinners, Seafood Stew with Saffron Broth and Whole Side of Salmon with Herb Sauce are made for entertaining, and One-Bowl Brownies and Birthday Cake will become beloved desserts. Zizka teaches readers how to store food properly and repurpose leftovers and explains topics newlywed couples will surely want to master: how to set up a pantry, set a table, plan a dinner party, create a signature cocktail, and cook together for a lifetime.
