Cookbook redesign... possible? - Macromedia Freehand

I was asked to design the layout and cover for a cookbook. I've never done something like it before. I have used FH (Studio MX) for brochures, etc. How can I get all the text into some sort of template to create all the pages I need? Is this possible or do I need another program? Any suggestions, templates, advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your help :)...

    I was asked to design the layout and cover for a cookbook. I've never done
    something like it before. I have used FH (Studio MX) for brochures, etc. How
    can I get all the text into some sort of template to create all the pages I
    need? Is this possible or do I need another program? Any suggestions,
    templates, advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your help :)

    I personally wouldn't recommend FH for putting together a whole book. It
    would definitely come into the process, using it to draw illustations
    and the like, along with Photoshop for image manipulation, but it would
    all come together with InDesign, my choice of page layout program. A
    page layout program offers much more powerful use of master pages,
    paragraph and character styles, and handling of large amounts of text.

    I'd start by developing a few dummy spreads, creating the general layout
    including image positioning, folio styles etc, and type style choices
    for body copy, headings, ingredients lists etc. Once you've got the
    overall design nailed, you can create master pages, styles etc, and
    start building the book.

    There's a whole lot more to think about related to production, a lot of
    which your printer could provide guidance with.

    thanks danny!
    Do you know where I could find a tutorial for this type of project? I understood everything you said except 'folio' :)
