The 14 menus in this colorful cookbook capture the very essence of the statement, "Life is good." And how can it not be with fresh Kumamoto oysters from Puget Sound, or Copper River salmon from Alaska, or herbed and grilled leg of lamb? Each special menu consists of five to seven recipes that, served together, comprise a memorable culinary event. For example, Atkinson's menu for a romantic summer dinner includes "Matisse Bread" or Fougasse, Three Shellfish with Three Citrus Fruits, Provençale Chicken with Tomato and Orange, and Chocolate Marquis with Saffron Cream.
