Our cookbook is an introductory guide to affordable gourmet cooking targeted at college students with access to a kitchen. We hope that by fulfilling this unmet need in the culinary market we will be able to provide students with an understanding of how to create and maintain a lifestyle conductive to healthy gourmet cooking. We have taken the financial situation of the average student into account in advising which ingredients to buy and giving prices to expect to pay. The recipes aim to dissuade students form establishing an unhealthy eating style. We have divided the cookbook into sections such as learning the language of cookbooks to brunch with friends. Each section contains recipes with varying levels of difficulty accompanied by a photo of the finished dish. Recipes include a brief description of each dish that often contains a helpful cooking hint, preparation, and cooking time.
