The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins with Sarah Leah Chase, illustrated by Sheila Lukins is not only a cookbook, but also a good resource about food. It has interesting sidebars about certain ingredients, menus for different occasions, quotes about food, serving and presentation suggestions.

The Silver Palate was (is?) a restaurant. This book, some others and a line of foods now sold in grocery stores also developed out of the restaurant.

Mini review

While many of the recipes are more complex, require special ingredients or techniques that I don't feel like using, I still find this cookbook to be a useful reference. The sidebars are interesting, and the suggestions about complementary flavors or foods are helpful. -- CocoaZen 02:58, August 12, 2011 (UTC)
