Eating isn't just about nourishment. It's the way we celebrate, socialize, and experience culture. Dining out can be a great way to experience new foods, but it can sometimes compromise the intimacy of sharing a meal. Learning to make some of your favorite meals at home can be so rewarding. There will be no wait times, no interruptions and no incorrect orders. It also provides a great opportunity to alter popular cuisine to accommodate various dietary needs and to lower calories. This guide provides over forty recipes to be composed to suit any occasion, as well as a sample party menu and tips for hosting popular events such as bridal showers or Super Bowl party. In addition to this, it is a reference for common spices, cooking techniques, and more. Though not a vegetarian cookbook, this book puts a great emphasis on the importance of vegetables in a meal for balanced nutrition.
