Book Description

20 April 2007
In 1982, Workman published a collection of 350 remarkable recipes from The Silver Palate, the first gourmet carry-out shop in Manhattan - and history was made. Everything about the book, its look, its voice, its quirky sidebars, but especially its recipes, was new and exciting. Home cooks finally had a book that gave them the wherewithal to prepare new cuisine that was, until then, only available in their favourite restaurants. It was the beginning of the food revolution, the chef as superstar. Without a restaurant, without the aid of a television show, Sheila Lukins and Julee Rosso and The Silver Palate became household names. Their dishes became classics: Chicken Marbella, Curried Butternut Squash Soup, Brie Wrapped in Filo, Chilli for a Crowd, Marinated Chevres, Raspberry-Sauternes Dessert Soup, and White Sangria. For the millions of fans who have dog-eared copies of "The Silver Palate Cookbook" and the millions more who grew up on Silver Palate food, comes a special anniversary edition that combines the celebrated recipes with gorgeous photographs of the food in full colour.

5.0 out of 5 stars my favourite cookbook! 23 Jun 2001
By A Customer
I have had the silver palate cookbook since the mid-eighties, when a friend brought it back from the States for me and I am actually ordering a new copy now because my old one has been used to tatters. This is really my favourite and most used cookbook, even here in the middle of Africa where not everything is always available. People just love what I make from the book and I am often asked for recipes. We are all particularly keen on 'the stew pot' recipes such as 'Dilled blanquete de veau', 'Beef Stroganoff' and 'Chili for a crowd' and we love the mousses as desserts. Of course it's a bit over the top to have to use 'best quality imported virgin olive oil' all the time, so I don't. But with regular olive oil it all works out too!
I can strongly recommend this book to anyone who loves cooking (and eating).

4.0 out of 5 stars Big hits and big misses. 16 Dec 1999
By A Customer
The Silver Palate's receipts are either wonderful hits or bizarre misses. All the receipts are truly inventive, and either that translates into simple elegant creations where the ingredients work well with each other (but you never would have thought to put them together), or elaborate procedures involving expensive ingredients that one would never have sitting around the kitchen (and is not likely to use again) and which aren't worth the trouble. One great success is a luscious summer pasta receipt with raw tomatoes, basil, olive oil, garlic... and brie... truly sumptuous and prepared in about ten minutes. All in all, still a must have.

The recipes in this book are very easy to read, thorough, and the ingredient lists are right on the mark for our tastes. Easy, complete and tasty!

Now for the rest of the story...

As I headed off to college, my mother gave me tons of advice (like get your ego in check...) and two cookbooks, Betty Crocker and The Silver Palate. She told me that it was time to get my ... stuff ... together and learn to be self-sufficient, and off I went never to look back.

Eventually... mac-n-cheese got old. Betty Crocker was a great starter and then I moved through the pages of The Silver Palate trying out new recipes on the weekends. My apartment-mates didn't mind and they actually started chipping in on the ingredients The recipes all seemed to be smash hits. Could have been that hungry college students are not all that picky, but when I came home for Thanksgiving and helped my mom cook Turkey dinner and stuffing (pages 95 - 96 of my edition)... my family loved it! Unbelievable.

So here's the kicker...

"We" (da Boys) were hanging out with friends when one (the cutest, of course) asked "OK, who is going to cook me dinner?" She may have been kidding, but I jumped in and said "I will". It was late, and we agreed to get together the next weekend so I could make good on that promise.

That next Saturday I had it all going on -- candles, wine and Braised Short Ribs (page 129). She arrived a moment early, so we ended up opening the wine and cooking those ribs together. The night was delicious.

We married a couple years later, have a couple kids, and we still use The Silver Palate. From Zucchini Bread (page 250) to Peasant Vegetable Soup (Page 64), and Veal Roll (page 106) to Buckwheat Crepes (page 318)...

The recipes are fine -- don't get me wrong. You'll enjoy both browsing and cooking from The Silver Palate. But as a connoisseur of cookbooks, to my eye what makes this cookbook unusual is its superb watercolors.

These are more than just watercolor sketches --
they are full portraits of food or surprising food vessels -- the 4-headed dragon bowl, for instance, although I'm not sure exactly WHAT those animals are. Hydra heads, maybe? Each portrait is taken from a striking Italian original.

This book should be listed under art books as well as cookbooks!

5.0 out of 5 stars The cookbook you can't live without! 29 Oct 1998
By A Customer
As an American living in France, I am amazed at the complements that I receive when I cook anything from this book. In fact mine is in shreds and I am ordering a new one. My French friends are always asking for the recipes and when I tell them it is an "American" recipe they are thrilled. Cook away and discover really international cuisine.

This is a wonderful cook book - I love the side notes and suggestions....The Pumpkin Pie Recipe is like no other I've tried and now is an essential element of my Thanksgiving Dessert offerings! Not too sweet and just the perfect amount of spices (Cardamom too) makes it extra aromatic and a delightful end to a savory meal.

5.0 out of 5 stars First cookery book I purchased 17 Jan 2014
This was the first cookery book I bought.

The chapters are split into easy common sense sections and the recipes within are beautiful. Whenever I cook from these recipes they are always a hit. There are little snippets and comments of food throughout history and also sidebars with inspirational menu ideas.

The illustrations are quirky and fun...and I also enjoy reading the quotations from other writers.

Would definitely recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too froufrou for me!
I found this cookbook to be lacking in the warmthness that epitomizes home-cooking. Its recipes were too restaurant style. Im sorry I bought the book.
