The Designer's Cookbook
This unique and beautifully produced cookbook presents an innovative take on menu design for the home cook as well as the practiced gourmet. Looking for something new to try in the kitchen? How about a delicious dinner in which each course—from appetizer to dessert—is the same color? It may sound impossible, but as this cookbook proves, color-coded cooking is not only possible but also delectable. Divided into twelve color-based chapters, the recipes range from saffron lemon ravioli to melon soup to blueberry tartlets, all arranged in four-course meals of two starters, one main course, one dessert and three drinks. These carefully tested recipes use only natural ingredients and no artificial colors and are as easy to prepare as they are to behold on the table. Brilliant photographs of the complete menu as well as individual ingredients will appeal to aesthetic and eclectic cooks—and the results are sure to create memorable meals that lead to further experimentation in the kitchen.
