Silver Palate Cookbook (paperback)
Shipping calculated at checkout
This is the revised, illustrated edition of a book which profoundly affected American home cooking when it first appeared in 1982. It has sold millions and millions of copies.
Authors Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins had been running a popular takeout shop in NYC for several years when the book first appeared. In it they asked home cooks to seek out imported cheeses and pink peppercorns, to make dishes like ceviche and something called chicken Marbella with prunes, olives, and capers.
More than forty years after it first appeared, The Silver Palate Cookbook (outfitted with color photographs when it was revised in 2007) still has the power to surprise cooks and coax them to try something new.
Written with a confident voice, and packed with informative sidebars that are just as useful explaining garlic as techniques such as the bain-marie, the book retains its luster after all these years.
Paperback. Color photographs throughout.
