The Silver Palate Cookbook - Julee Rosso & Sheila Lukins

Hardback.  Very good condition.  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, 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.
