This spiral book would be the perfect gift for the couples in your life. When searching for the best couples cookbook, The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook is a great choice. The spiral bound version of The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook is great for those who really use and abuse their books. Our proprietary binding helps you lay this title flat for easier reading and handling. If you’re looking for cookbooks for small families, or those with less counter space, then the spiral bound version of The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook is the only way to go.

Because smaller families shouldn't have to rely on recipes built for four or six, America's Test Kitchen has reengineered 650 of our best recipes to serve just two. Over the years we've discovered that scaling down a recipe isn't as simple as cutting the ingredients in half—cooking times, temperatures, and equipment need to be adapted as well. This comprehensive cookbook takes the guesswork out of cooking for two so you can be sure that anything you want to make—from Classic Beef Stew to Lasagna to a mini batch of Fudgy Brownies or a Fluffy Yellow Layer Cake—will come out right (and perfectly proportioned) every time. We'll also give you options when you're short on time. 150 recipes, including Chicken Saltimbocca and Pan-Seared Rib-Eye Steaks with Sweet-Tart Red Wine Sauce, can be on the table in 30 minutes or less. For those times when you want healthier fare, we've provided more than 100 recipes labeled "Light" such as Provencal Vegetable Soup and Poached Shrimp Salad with Avocado and Grapefruit, each with nutritional information listed in an easy-to-read chart in the back of the book. And we include chapters on for-two slow cooking, grilling, and baking pies, quick breads, cakes, and cookies.

Flat Cooking for Two

I use Cooking Illustrated’s Cooking for Two all the time. My conventional copy was falling apart. Pages were coming out. I had to hold it together with duct tape. The Flat spiral version was the perfect solution.


Very informative and excellent recipes when cooking for two people. Best book ever!
