Pick a card, any card -- say, tandoori chicken with cucumber raita, or barbecued onions -- from the new Fanfare series of cookbooks from Time-Life (1997, $12.95 each). The books, due in bookstores this month, have stiff pages that fan out of the cover, which then becomes a stand, holding the recipe so you can see it. So far the series includes books on grilling, vegetarian foods, salads and pasta. Future titles will include chicken dishes and desserts.
