About Table for Two
Whether it's your Mum, your best friend, or your significant other, sweep the person you love off their feet with failsafe recipes for show-off meals for two.
Table for Two is food writer Bre Graham's first cookbook, showcasing recipes to cook for the people you love. Food to make your heartbeat faster, crunchy things, things to risk looking silly eating like spaghetti twirled straight from your fork onto your white t-shirt. The two most romantic meals of all: breakfast fry-ups and Sunday roasts, which mirror the pace of love as "everything all at once" and "something that takes too long to arrive". Things that look beautiful, super quick to whip up things, alcohol-infused everything - these dishes are for the days when you want to set the table for two and focus on someone special.
From uncomplicated-but-outstanding in Part I, to over-the-top-but-no-stress cooking in Part II, Table for Two is organized by ease of assembly, helping you to impress at breakfast, lunch, aperitivo, dinner, and dessert. Featuring illustrated essays on topics like the simple pleasure of a delivery pizza, and breathtaking, multi-course menus catering to really special occasions, Table for Two guides you through the moments you want to say: "I love you, let me feed you something that will make you feel good".
