Cookbook? what's it called?

ashii Dec 18, 2007 10:04 AM

So i am creating a cook book for my father. It is a selection of very special recipes which are not in my published cookbook. It is relatively small with very complicated recipes for a variety of exquisite fusion fair.
I want something very interesting and unique for the title being i am having a professional designer creating the format and cover. But with the holidays and what not i think my brain is fried. Below i have outlined a few of the recipes, Please help determine or throw some ideas my way for the title of the book, it will be oh so appreciated.

Onion tarts, Mushrooms and garlic snails, Crab cakes,
Chipotle pork tenderloin with Ancho chili mustard sauce, Serve with mounded Carmelized onions
Stuffed Leg of Lamb with Balsamic-Fig-Basil Sauce
Porcini Crusted Elk Wellington with Creamed Spinach wrapped in Puff Pastry with imported provolone cheese sauce over garlic creamed potatoes
Ashii’s Beef Phyllo Tenderloin with Rich Merlot Sauce

    Because You Fed Me...

    inside intro:
    Now I am feeding you. With recipes and with love, with memories, with inspiration of
    what I have tasted and where I have traveled in the many years since you first fed me
    solid food.

    you get the idea.
    twist it around so it works for you and your individual situation.

          Perhaps include some personalizing aspect, most obvious being a name. Something like "The Jones Family Feast," or "Setting the Table for Bob," or " Homage to Frank's Palate!" Using your father's given or family name may mean a little more than the generic "dad."

            I always disliked using names, otherwise, the last name is Webster, but i would rather not use it. But thanks guys!

              I really like this one! All those F's have a certain flair.

              But just in case the OP uses this title, note that it's spelled "Fare" when referring to food. ("Fair" is a carnival - though that meaning might work, too.)

                I thought about the spelling of fair as I typed it. I should have put Fare.

                Another is Fabulous Fusion for Father

                With a good script font, with a fancy F, you could make it very festive for the cover. Man, I can see it in my mind!

              "Potpourri" or "Food Potpourri".

              Although, I really like CFD's "Slop for Pop" or "Crap for Pap".... HAAA!!!

                "Feasts For Father!"
                "Deli for Dad!"
                "Slop For Pop!"
                "Crap For Pap!"

                ...I'm losing it!...have I gone too far???
