20 family-inspired menus

Most of the 20 menus in The Two Sisters Cookbook feature an appetizer or 2, a main dish, side dishes, a salad, and a dessert. Throughout the book, you'll have a chance to meet some of my incredible family, who live in Austria, Canada, Germany, and Serbia. Their stories and my memories are the inspiration for each of the menus in the cookbook. All of the recipes included in the book are relatively quick and easy to prepare, represent dishes from many cultures, and serve about 8 people.
