Format: Kindle Edition
I purchased this book in 2000.

The format of this book follows on from the Silver Palate Cookbook: Illustrations, sidebars with menu ideas and quotations from other writers.

In this book the chapters are split into entertaining ideas, for example, 'The Splurge of Spring,' 'Autumn Hues', etc. The recipes then follow quite seasonal fare. Menu ideas fall within the chapters for example, 'fireside food','Mothers day' and so on...Even though I have had this book almost 15 years... it is still one of my favourites and stands up to all the 'celebrity' chefs we are inundated with at the moment.

This is another great book from the ladies...

Would defintely recommend

It is rather a dated cookbook but I expected that as I have known about this book for a long time, and have used its recipes before. Considering it's over 20 years old the condition is fine.

Essential resource for entertaining! 28 Feb. 2001
By mirope - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great accompaniment to the original Silver Palette Cookbook. The emphasis here is on entertaining, so the recipes are frequently more formal and serve larger quantities. The book is arranged seasonally with proposed menus (i.e. a Kentucky Derby party, mid-winter skiing holiday). You'll get great ideas for parties just looking through the book. Plus, there are lots of great tips on planning a party and cooking for a crowd. I particularly recommend the Broccoli-Watercress Soup - I return to it again and again as the definitive cream of broccoli soup. If you're not able to brine your Thanksgiving turkey (which is my personal favorite but very time consuming), the recipe and cooking method in this book is the next best thing. Also, their turkey saves better than any other I've tried. Martha Stewart has better pictures of entertaining in her cookbooks, but this book has the best recipes for entertaining and is the most practical for your typical cook.

outstanding recipes make any meal a special occasion! 9 Aug. 1999
By Robert T. Nicholson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Alright, these recipes are not nutritionally-correct. Many are high on fats and sugars. But when you want a special dish to really "wow" your guests, or to celebrate a special occasion, this is the book you'll turn to! Not only are the recipes great, but the sidebars have lots of useful tips for serving and entertaining. This is one of the two or three most used cookbooks in my collection!

My favorite cookbook 12 Dec. 2002
By "bluesnowman" - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is the most used book in my kitchen. I love the seasonal approach, and always look at the book for dinner and entertaining ideas at the start of each season.
Some of my favorites are Bobbies Roast Chicken (ginger, mustard, lemon, mmmm!), June's Apple Crisp, some of the unusual and festive winter vegetables dishes (how about Brussels sprouts with maple and walnut vinaigrette or the Ruby Radishes?).
Christmas is very special indeed with the Red and Green Christmas Salad (spinach, avocado and pomegranates) with Warm Champagne Vinegar Dressing.
Buy it, you will feel inspired to be more creative with your cooking!

Yummmmmm 3 July 2002
By R. Tiedemann - Published on
Format: Paperback
The recipe for Chocolate Raspberry Cake alone is worth the price of this book.Then there's the St. Nicholas Cake, a fruity cake for the holidays and Eggnog French Toast and Lamb Stew with Lemon and Olives. Recipes have some unusual ingredients sometimes, but you can often track them down without too much trouble.
The book is beautifully organized by the seasons. You'll find fancier illustrations elsewhere, but you won't find better recipes for entertaining. Rosse and Lukins developed these recipes for their shop in New York City and each one that I've tried is a hit. So many cookbooks have mediocre recipes but you can depend on this one.

Fabulous seasonal food 3 Mar. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
All of these recipes will encourage one to begin cooking with a fervor - no matter what the season! All ingredients are seasonal ... but uniquely combined. But, be warned! These recipes are not for the mom-on-the-go. They are time consuming.
