The Silver Palate Cookbook

by Julee Rosso, Sheila Lukins and Michael McLaughlin

Here's the Silver Anniversary edition, with a feast of 100 full-color photographs throughout and a vibrant new cover. This edition is the perfect gift to replace the millions of bedraggled copies in kitchens across America, and will introduce its timeless pleasures to a new generation of cooks.

With over 2.2 million copies in print, the widely acclaimed The Silver Palate Cookbook is firmly established as a contemporary classic. Originally published in 1982, the book's elegant, innovative recipes and emphasis on pure, fresh, ingredients ushered a new passion for food and hospitality into the American consciousness.

The lively collection of clear, step-by-step recipes ranges from sublimely refined traditions—Pesto, Manhattan Clam Chowder, and Stuffed Artichokes—to original creations certain to become the topic of conversation at any dinner party. There's Paté de Campagne with Walnuts and Juniper Berries. Fruit-Stuffed Cornish Hens. Caviar Eclairs. Blueberry Bisque. Plus over 300 more recipes for hors d'oeuvres, dips and sauces, picnic fare, entrées, salads, soups, breads, desserts. Throughout the book are valuable menu and serving suggestions, literary quotes, food guides, food lore, and whimsical illustrations. The Silver Palate Cookbook is a selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club, Quality Paperback Book Club, Book-of-the-Month Club's HomeStyle Books, Better Homes & Gardens Family Book Service, and the ABA Basic Booklist, and a James Beard Book Awards inductee into the cookbook Hall of Fame.

Founded in 1977, The Silver Palate is one of the nation's most well-respected and celebrated gourmet food shops—and its owners two of America's most celebrated cooks. Sheila Lukins and Julee Rosso are the co-authors of three cookbooks that set the standard for aspiring chefs across the nation. Also available by the authors: The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook, containing 450 recipes that will transform any occasion into something magical; and The New Basics Cookbook, with 875 recipes that comprise the best of our cuisine in all its abundant pleasure and variety.
