Spice up your married life in the kitchen

The time that follows immediately after your wedding day is a happy time but it has its set of trials and testing. Yes it may be called the honeymoon period but soon you may realize that you have to grow up and take on responsibilities.

Cooking seems to be the hardest task of all for most couples. Most newlyweds miss their home cooking and try their best to replicate it. A new bride dreads the thought of presenting her very first dish at her in-laws home and hopes that only compliments come her way but does it always have to be so difficult?

If you have entered into a marriage as husband and wife, you can also enter the kitchen together and make cooking one of those activities you look forward too.

Two like-minded personalities can work well in the kitchen but sometimes it could even lead to arguments on trivial matters such as how much salt to add in the curry. To avoid quarrels during this important time in your lives, you could resort to recipe books. Then you can keep your individual opinions aside and focus on the chef’s recipe.

India’s number one chef, TV host, culinary award winner and cookbook writer, Sanjeev Kapoor has a specially designed book for newlyweds. He calls it the Sanjeev Kapoor’s Wedding Collection. It is full of vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian recipes. The book covers almost any occasion that can arise during your married life. He gives you recipes for your romantic dinners for two or times when you are entertaining friends and family. It has everything from mocktails, exotic appetisers, some mouth-watering main course to the very crucial desserts.

Besides Sanjeev Kapoor, there are many other chefs around the world who identified the needs of newlyweds and have written cookbooks that you must add to your collection.


You will enjoy cooking the recipes composed by Sarah Copeland in her book The Newlywed Cookbook. She has some great chocolate recipes for you chocoholics.


You can make a healthy choice for your family when you try recipes from The New Moosewood Cookbook written by Mollie Katzen. If you are entering into the world of cooking for the very first time, try some straight forward recipes by Mark Bittman in How to Cook Everything: Simple Recipes for Great Food.


There are some cookbooks that everyone should add to their kitchen such as The Joy of Cooking by Irma S. Rombauer. The book has been an inspiration to many and is a very good read.


A book for your topmost shelf would have to be The Essential New York Times Cookbook written by Amanda Hesser. The book is compilation of more than 1000 fabulous recipes which will never go old.

The basic idea you need to get is that there are thousands of books online and in stores for newlyweds. Get your copy and cooking will be the least of your problems. You can then focus on the more important things in your marriage like family and togetherness.
