Review based on the single menu that I've tried.

This was a gift, an interesting idea for a book (and three before before it). There are complete menus for two from "romantic country inns" with a cassette of music from the San Francisco String Quartet.

For our xmas dinner I made an interesting menu from the Hotel Hana-Maui. While we enjoyed everything we ate, the recipes themselves were rather weak.

The starter recipe was probably originally for six (or more) and was very badly/incompletely cut back for two. The dessert recipe may also have been meant for more than two, or else it was for two gluttons.

The instructions are not especially well written or edited. E.g., one ingredient list calls for lamb stock or chicken broth, while the instructions call for lamb or beef.

The menu I made was relatively easy to make and serve. Other menus seem to me like you'd need someone to help with the cooking (who wasn't eating) to be able to get them on the table in a reasonable time.

It would be very nice to have a time line for the preparation with each menu.
