Description: A skilled professional chef shares the hints, tips, and secrets behind her success. 

Here are twenty complete menus in styles ranging from the classic French to the classic Chinese, along with clear and precise instructions for coordinating their preparation and presentation in order to achieve maximum success with a minimum of labor and anxiety. 

The menus range from a nostalgic bistro dinner centering on Choucroute Garni to a transcendent Chinese menu including Peking Scallion Noodles and Mahogany Duck to an elegantly presented rack of lamb with all the trimmings. As she guides you through each meal in a chatty, witty, and irreverent style, Anne Matthews gives away the secrets she learned during her sixteen years as a professional chef and restaurateur. With her at your side, cooking a four-course sit-down dinner for company will be foolproof and fun, and even the experienced cook will learn new tricks to add to his or her repertoire.
