Can anyone recommend a cookbook that along with main recipes gives suggestions for good match side dishes

Martha Stewart's Dinner at Home. There are 52 meal ideas

Pierino - I agree that the Flavor Bible is a standout book, but since it doesn't actually have any recipes (fabulous ideas for flavor pairings -- no, OUTSTANDING ideas for flavor pairings), I'm not sure it would meet mbobden's needs...

Another good one is THE FLAVOR BIBLE by Page and Dornenberg. It did win an IACP award.

Try Nigella Lawson's recipe books.

Patricia Wells has a book with matches, not sure which one. Has wine matches, too. Lots of books include sample menus incl Betty Crocker 1950, which I love, Marion Cunningham's Supper Book and Breakfast Book, ditto. Martha Stewart's Quick Cook is composed entirely of menus. Her menus tend to be wildly caloric, tho.

Voted the Best Reply!

Amanda Hesser's New York Times Cookbook is am amazing compendium of well-curated wonderful recipes, and she has menu suggestions in the back of the book.
