The format is that there are Feasts for different events (Spring and Summer Equinox, Planets, Astrological signs, Chakras, etc). Under each feast, there is a careful crafted menu created by the author, the menu is divided into 7 different parts: Appetizers, Soup/Bread, Salad, Main Course, Side Dishes, Desserts and Beverage Suggestions. Under each part, there are one or more recipes which can be used. Inside the recipes, we have an ingredients list, step-by-step instructions on how to prepare the dish and at the end a correspondence from the author. While reading each recipe, I can feel that the author is beside me and having a conversation with me about the ingredients being used in the dish. Not only that, but the author speaks to you through each recipe.
For example, in her Red Salmon Caviar Bites with Cream Cheese recipe she writes: "I know what you're thinking, oysters on the half shell and caviar -- they don't really go well with a student's budget. However, only a small amount per person is needed so a lot goes a long way. After all, it's a celebration, so make it special."
The recipes are lovely, the feasts are huge and the guidance of author is genuine and special. This is not your normal Food Network Recipe book, this is take foodie mode to the next level beyond your imagination. I strongly recommend it to anyone. The recipes are mage for large quantities (because the recipes as I have mentioned before are for feasts of 10 - 20 people), but you can always do the math and reduce the recipe down.
My only request is that in the future, the author releases and electronic version so I can keep it with my iPad. :-)
