The ultimate gift for newly married or engaged couples, Two in the Kitchen features a modern design, sprightly illustrations, lush photography, and 150 recipes for every occasion—from breakfast and brunch to cocktail hour to weeknight dinners for two to dinner parties to holidays.
“We both grew up in households in which family mealtime was sacred, and the rituals surrounding eating and drinking have continued to define and unite us. Cooking together is a way of reveling in each other and in our union. We hope that you will find the same bliss in the kitchen that we do.” — Christie & Jordan
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 resonant information for modern 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, how to cook happily with your spouse and entertain family and friends. Additionally, five other couples from spanning the country share their secrets and tips for achieving kitchen bliss. 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—speaking to novice cooks looking for fresh and easy recipes. 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 party are presented in short, easy-to-read sidebars throughout the front of the book.
