5.0 out of 5 stars One great cookbook...... 7 Sep 2010
By Julie W. Snyder - Published on
In my opinion this is a highly under rated Anna Pump cookbook. If you have cooked Ina Garten very much you can see where some of her food pairings come from. Anna and Sybille (Anna's daughter) have a wonderful variety of menus for large and small gatherings and include some unique recipes. There are suggestions on food procedures you can do a day or two ahead of time and also how you can use extra ingredients in another recipe. Quantities for the menus are geared for a certain number e.g. "Summer Dinner for 12", "Wedding Party for 40", "Sunday Brunch for 6".

I have all of Anna Pump's cookbooks and I have to admit that there are certain recipes in this Party cookbook that I prefer more than the Loaves and Fishes. The menus are organized by season and take advantage of fresh produce and seasonal entertaining. The biggest drawback of the cook book is the menus include entrees popular in the Northeast (lobster strudels , duck pie, clam fritters) but with ingredients that are more easily found these days in all of our supermarkets if you wanted to splurge.......

The vast majority of the recipes in this book are wonderful and most are one page long. I haven't made a single flop. But the best news is this Anna Pump book can still be purchased at a reasonable price. Printed in 1990, used copies seem to be readily available. If you get a chance to snap one up and you are a "foodie", I promise you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pumped! 11 Nov 2009
By Sharon B. Pritchett - Published on
Anna and Sybille Pump have created an exceptional cookbook. Recipes are as simple as they can be still delivering extraordinary results. These recipes are innovative, unfussy, and tested in a commercial kitchen that has no time to waste. Dishes present very well and the flavors in each carefully crafted recipe are clear, sufficiently complex without being at all muddled. This is one of my very favorite cookbooks, reflecting as it does skills well honed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Addition to My Cookbook Collection 23 May 2010
By K. L'Allier - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love Anna Pump and her simple, elegant food. There are no exotic, hard to find (harder to finish) ingredients here. The recipes in this book will inspire you to head into the kitchen and perhaps even to host a party just to show off a new favorite recipe.

This is a beautiful hardcover cookbook with clear recipe layouts and easy to follow instructions. But, like her earlier The Loaves and Fishes Cookbook, it does not have any pictures. I am not a fan of "party" cookbooks-- instead of organizing the recipes by meat, fish, dessert, etc., this cookbook is organized by season (The Glories of Spring, The Best of Summer, Autumn's Harvest, and The Glow of Winter) and from there in to different party menus (Spring Dinner for Twelve, Fourth of July Celebration for Sixteen, Lunch on a Cold Fall Day for Eight, Holiday Buffet for Thirty, etc.).

Her Easter Dinner Menu calls for Red Pepper Soup with Garlic Croutons, Broiled Lamb Chops with Mint Hollandaise, Asparagus Roasted in Olive Oil, Rosti, Lemon Mousse, and Chocolate Madeleines.

I would highly recommend this cookbook.
