How to Cook the Perfect Day is filled with beautiful images and simple recipes with headnotes that dreamily document a perfect day--including a picnic rendezvous, an afternoon tea, and a midnight snack. The book opens with the suggestion of a morning forage in the great outdoors instead of in the kitchen pantry for whatever readers can find to nibble on. A recipe for peaches and waffles follows; it's a breakfast treat McClure's husband makes for the family often. Recipes for a lovely gingerbread cake, a curry potluck, and a celestial apple pie are all accompanied by Nikki McClure's elegant artwork.
