Description

There can be nothing more difficult than planning a menu for a select group of friends. Imagine the mess! Flipping through a large cookbook, shuffling pages to find the recipe of your choice, wondering if it would even look good, and what if it doesn't all come together just the way you'd like it? Mix and Match Meals does away with the pain of creating a menu that keeps you in suspense. It makes planning and cooking a three-course meal a breeze. An easy-to-use, mix-and-match book that is specially designed in a split-page format so that any combination can be viewed all together on one page.

The book is divided into three sections-Starters, Main Course, and Desserts that will allow readers to flip through pages one course at a time and select a menu. Each course has a special selection of 90 recipes that are easy to follow and guaranteed to please. Choose between quick and simple no-cook meals to meals to impress.

Special icons with each recipe offer at-a-glance information. Opt for a healthy low-fat meal, a light brunch-inspired menu, or an indulgent, luxurious menu. Choose from 270 recipes classified under unique chapter headings that make it easy to select recipes.

To ensure that you can easily keep track of all the menus you have tried and loved, turn to the "My Favorite Menus" page toward the end of the book, and keep notes of your favorite combinations.

Note: Mix and Match Meals will use content from Illustrated Kitchen Bible, Illustrated Quick Cook, and various other DK cookbooks.
