This is not standard frittata or stir-fried farethe 50 menus here are divided into such categories as fish, poultry, veal, beef, lamb, pasta, soup and one-pot meals, all comprising a main course accompanied by one or two side dishes. And the meals are versatile enough to suit friendly lunchtime gatherings as well as more formal entertainment, with such offerings as sauteed dilled fillets of sole with cucumber, savory rice and zucchini saute; lemon-chicken breasts with fresh herb pasta and glazed carrots; and jambalaya with citrus salad and yogurt dressing. Each of the menus includes a wine suggestion as well as serving and garnishing tips. The straightforward introduction offers encouragement for the beginner and time-saving advice even experienced cooks will appreciate. Part of the California Culinary Academy series. (September)
