From the popular Marie Claire magazine series comes a beautiful collection cookbooks designed with style in mind.
Breakfast is an inspiring compilation for all kinds of morning meals; from those in the gratifyingly easy Quick Ideas section to the heartier sweet or savory breakfasts options. The ninetyfive recipes are chic and tasty. They focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients with international flavors. Try the Cinnamon Oatmeal with Caramel Figs and Cream or the High-Top Cappuccino and White-Chocolate Muffins. Each recipe is presented in a clean, simple style alongside mouth watering photos of the finished dishes.
Eating something delicious later in the day is good for the soul. Stylish, satisfying and simple recipes abound in Lunch, so much so that, with this cookbook, customers are spoiled for choice. With chapters on soups, pasta, noodles and rice, seafood, poultry, meat, vegetables and yummy desserts, you're sure to find an idea for something your customers will rave about. Try baby romaine, prosciutto, and Parmesan shavings doused in herby mayo, or avocado with toasted pine nuts, snow pea sprouts and balsamic vinegar.
This classy collection of modern recipes comes to life with beautiful, fresh photography.
