Overview

Whether it was a whirlwind romance or you've known each other for years, you are entering a new stage of life. Now that you're married, it's time to think about the new life and traditions you'd like to create. Often our fondest family memories are centered around the dinner table, with the fulfilling meals and companionship it offers.

To create this cookbook, Gayle Pirie and John Clark have drawn from their experience as restaurant chefs and on their shared history as a married couple. They have cooked in some of San Francisco's best restaurants for nearly twenty years, so they know how to make food taste delicious. But they also know what it's like to come home from a long day of work and want to create a comfortable haven for their family. In these pages, Gayle and John have brought together dozens of their own favorite dishes that can create hundreds of family meals.

Knowing that most of their readers won't have learned the art of cooking at their grandmother's knee, they've also included the basics. The Bride & Groom Cookbook explains all you need to know about setting up a kitchen and pantry with essential equipment and ingredients, combining dishes to create a meal, and even cooking methods. If you're already comfortable in the kitchen, you'll find plenty of valuable advice on pairing wine and food, serving a cheese course, and gracious entertaining.

The two of you could take only one cookbook with you as you embark together into this new and rewarding stage of life, the Bride & Groom Cookbook would truly be the one.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This elegantly designed, lavishly illustrated book looks like an extravagance but has the power to please any newlywed. Master chefs and married couple Gayle Pirie and John Clark have created a bride-and-groom cookbook that offers both instruction and 150 modern classic recipes, from simple stay-in breakfasts to elaborate sit-down dinners. Each recipe includes preparation notes, cooking times, and a difficulty rating. The book also contains tips on wine selection, cheese courses, purchasing equipment, stocking a pantry, and choosing ingredients.
From the Publisher
"I love to eat Gayle Pirie and John Clark's food at their San Francisco restaurant Foreign Cinema, so it is a pleasure to have their recipes at hand in this cookbook. More than that, it's a wonderful primer for any young couple just starting out, showing them everything they need to know about setting up a kitchen and pantry, cooking and serving food and wine, and entertaining with grace."
— Chuck Williams

    Lovely!

    I got married in July, and before this cookbook I did all the cooking myself -- my husband was pathologically afraid of the kitchen! However, this cookbook really brought us together, and the meals are straightforward and delicious!

    Love the book but poorly packed

    Nice quality book but it wasn't wrapped in bubble wrap for shipping. Dust jacket had tears in corner and a bump on another corner of the hardback. Not cool for gift giving.
