Gourmet Safari Singles (Individual Recipes)

“Spreading the love, one recipe at a time.”

Yes, I know the Gourmet Safari Albums (Complete Menus) are impressive and bold in taste, flavour and effort required (if I don’t say so myself).  No time, no worries – as we all know, practicality has everything to do with all things creative including culinary…and oh relationary in the bedrooms of the nation! If you want to create a more simplified ‘Gourmet L-O-V-E’ meal, (for instance), feel free to chose from any of the ‘A la carte Singles’ (Recipes), create your own menu and bring lady luck to dine at your dinner table.  Trust me…same magic applies AND the menu is your own creation!
