Cookbook Review: Cooking for Two

Cooking for Two Cookbook Relish Decor

Fast Review: Two’s company, three’s a crowd!

There is something extra special about sharing a quiet, intimate meal with another person. Whether it is your spouse, a friend, or a date, these dinners allow us to step away from the bustle of everyday life and truly connect. Cooking a meal for two, however, poses some interesting challenges! Most recipes are designed to feed a minimum of four, leaving you and your guest either stuffed to the gills or eating leftovers for days.  Plus, scaling down is not always a safe option since many ingredients can be tricky to cut in half. Cooking for Two offers an inspirational and appetite whetting answer to these obstacles, packed full of recipes perfectly portioned to satisfy a duo of diners. Read on for our review, pick up your copy, and set the table for two!
