I don't know whether the author's title reflects a newlywed's pride for her magnificently talented husband, or the praises sung by her tastebuds. How about both!

My husband made this modest banquet for us yesterday morning, and well, you already know my opinion on it. So give it a try and let me know how you like it! :)
