    I am actually reading a cookbook from start to finish!!! The recipes have already won me over, but the tidbits, the quotes, the organization of this book are absolutely delightful! And no calories for reading about food!! ...

    a flavor bomb of '80s cooking inspiration: think: lots of reductions and specialized vinegars and fussy cheeses. now, my love of cooking is FOUNDED on the stuff i ate from this era, so i can totally get on board. and one of my favorite lasagnas in the world was created by these ladies ...

    Oh, the eighties. What marvelous, ridiculous foodie ideas you had. *sigh* Back when capers were an adventure. That said, this is the first place I encountered the idea of using aluminum foil instead of parchment paper for cooking en papillote, and I will never not be grateful for th...

    I was thrilled when I got this cookbook for $1 at a used book store. Now I know why someone had given it away! I've tried four recipes in it, and they were all wrong. I know how to cook; I have enough experience to know when a recipe is "not my taste" and when it's just plain wrong. Th...

    Anyone who knows me ---well they know what joy a cookbook can bring to me. Inspiration for great food is everything. Ketchp is the little black dress of our generation---why not make it gourmet ketchup? ...

    I got this book as gift many years ago when I asked some one where did you learn how to cook chicken like this? I get rave reviews when I make the coffee cake from this cookbook and many other yummy treats. Check it out for sure! ...

    An inspiring cookbook that really celebrates food and makes you want to plan dinner parties. The recipes are a little outdated for being high fat, high calorie, so it's not one I use much in my everyday cooking. ...

    Lovely little cookbook, written by the friend of a friend, and given to me by another friend. I've used many recipes from this one, but particularly liked the chicken marabella (which sounds bettern than chicken with prunes), which was easy to prepare when serving large groups. Most me...

    An awesome cookbook from way back in 1982, when finding flat leaf parsley was a real challenge and nobody knew what pesto was yet...but these two women helped put gourmet food on the map! And to them I say, thank you. ...

    I was in high school when I got this book. My friends and I used to host tea parties and picnics for each other and this was a great source for fancy little dishes for that kind of party. It was a one-of-a-kind, innovative, indulgent book at the time. But I only used it for a few years...

    Back in the 80's before there was FoodTv and the internet, gthis WAS the cookbook if you entertained. This was the cookbook that inspired me to start a small catering business back in the early 90's. I went to a dinner party lately and the hostess served chicken Marbella. A classic! I ...

    Even I, who really don't know how to cook, have had success with lots of these wonderful recipes. Makes me feel comfortable with dinner parties. Love the Beef Stroganoff(pg 128)and Eggplant Parmiigiana (pg 168). Also recommend THE NEW BASICS COOKBOOK by the same authors. ...

    This book was so-so for me. There were recipes that were beyond fantastic and I will see myself making for meals/entertaining. Some were a bit too extravagant for my level of entertaining. The pasta/veggies/desserts sections were just yummy and those were the ones that stood out the mo...

    If I want to cook a special meal, this is the first cookbook I turn to. At least one dish, often the whole meal comes from the recipes in this book. I have been using it since 1986, and over the years have tried the majority of the recipes.. some recipes 30+ times (like the chocolate m...

    There is no recipe in this book that is imperfect. I love how a good cookbook can give you such an impression of the culture/time it came from. Take a trip in the time warp machine back to shoulder pads and print newspapers and get cooking. ...

    I first got this cookbook years ago when I was first taking a real interest in cooking. Many of the recipes and ingredients seemed exotic to me then, but I learned so much and bought all the books by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins I could get my hands on. Those recipes no longer seem so...

    I had heard so much about this cook book over the years, but for some reason never purchased it. After reading, Apron Anxiety: My Messy Affairs In and Out of the Kitchen, I decided to splurge, especially when I saw the kindle special sale. (The lemon cake recipe was referenced in the b...

    THE classic. This book started it all. The shop was purely new in the late seventies, and the book changed how the USA cooked. Remember, this came out when no one would ever consider making something strange like "Ratatouille" When I need a tasty morsel for my family or a party, this i...

    I actually looked at the hard copy of the 25th anniversary edition. I was curious to see how color plates added to the book since I have successfully cooked so many things from the original cookbook that my copy is dog-eared. I was pretty disappointed. There really aren't that many p...

    I still have my well loved duo of original silver palate cookbooks. A beloved Christmas gift from a boyfriend in 1987. I refer to these often even though my library of cookery spans an entire wall; floor to ceiling. Simply classic, relatively easy and delicious. Many menu ideas and tip...

    This is an interesting book and will bring back memories to anyone old enough to remember it's first printing. Many of the recipes create delicious meals however, the list of ingredients can appear daunting by today's standards. ...

    I found this book on a shelf at a vacation rental and it is such a great book that I didn't read some of the books I brought with me. The recipes have become classics at our house. It's a lovely book with recipes for the beginner cook and inspiration for the advanced. ...

    This is my mother's cookbook and has more New York Sunday society classics than you can shake a stick at. Chicken Marbella, anyone? What about quiches galore? Heck, there's a whole section on "Brunch Drinks." Sometimes it can get a bit ridiculous (Herbed Caviar Roulade?), but it featur...

    An essential classic! All the recipes work, but if you get this book for no other reason, the recipe for chicken Marbella will be worth it. ...

    A good cookbook, but not a great I one. Many of the recipes call for ingredients that one might not necessarily have in their cabinets. This is the kind of book to buy someone who wants to get into a little gourmet cooking. ...

    A great cookbook. Perhaps as much fun to read as to enjoy the recipes. Lots of good background on most recipes and lots of info on ingredients. Sometimes basic recipes have lots of variations suggested. The sections on salads were particularly great. The tone is sort of 5th Avenue ...
