Organized with the 2-4-6-8 principle, each section contains four full menus, plus cooking, decorating, and entertaining tips taken from real life experiences. The “2” chapter, for The Two of You, deals with the couple's care and feeding, emphasizing the need for alone time. The “4” chapter for a Party of Four includes easy but sophisticated menus with a seasonal bent. “6” celebrates The Joy of Six with lunches and dinners, sometimes in unusual places, and Eight and Up changes the formula slightly to provide not only a swanky dinner party for eight, but for sixteen, twenty-four, and thirty-two.
Special “Multiplication Tables” note which menus are easily halved, doubled, and more, with specific notes on what might occur if the reader wants to alter the recipes. Easy, annotated recipe conversions provide additional assistance.
Rounding out this Uniquely wonderful book are Jessie's exuberant, contemporary tone, unique entertaining suggestions, and delicious watercolor illustrations throughout.
