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)... this is one great cookbook that has become part of our family.
When our son heads off to college someday, guess which two books his mom plans to send him off with... yep. Who knew that a cookbook has such power!
I can strongly recommend this book to anyone who loves cooking (and eating).
(This review refers to an old edition of 'the Silver Palate Cookbook')
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.
