Overview

For nearly a century, Neiman Marcus has epitomized luxury—urbane merchandise in an elegant ambience. Neiman Marcus is also famous for the extraordinary food it serves at its restaurants and cafés across the country. Now, at long last, the renowned institution shares more than fifty years’ worth of legendary dishes in this lavishly illustrated cookbook.

From the flagship store in Dallas, featuring the Zodiac Restaurant, to its landmark Rotunda restaurant overlooking Union Square in San Francisco and its newest restaurant, Mariposa, in Coral Gables, Florida, there are forty-two Neiman Marcus restaurants in stores across the country. The first one opened in 1953, and in the last half century Neiman Marcus has become almost as well known for its fresh and delicious cuisine as it is for its fashion.

Neiman Marcus Cookbook will delight the store’s loyal fans and food connoisseurs alike, with more than 160 delectable recipes. The exquisite dishes range from simple soups and salads such as Summer Tomato Soup with Basil and Ricotta and Mediterranean Fattoush Salad to more ambitious entrées like Burnt Honey-Orange Chicken and Soy-Glazed Farm-Raised Trout. Longtime fans will be delighted to find recipes for Neiman Marcus’s famous Strawberry Butter, Mandarin Orange Soufflé Salad, Popovers, and Chicken Salad—not to mention their legendary Chocolate Chip Cookie.

Neiman Marcus Cookbook is a celebration of a store that has been a trusted institution for nearly a century, and of a cuisine that’s been the favorite of discerning Americans for generations.

This is one of the best cookbooks I have ever read through and used. The recipe instructions are very clear and concise, and the ingredients used are readily available. When making any one of the recipes in this book - from Turkey Meatloaf to Jambalaya to Chocolate Chip Cookies- you can be assured that you are making the very best, if not the most traditional.
