When I first began to learn how to cook I was overwhelmed with the array of cookbooks on the market. I purchased several compilations and found many of the recipes to have uneven results. You could spend an hour on a recipe only to have it turn out to be the blandest meal ever produced. In came The Silver Palate Cookbook by Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins. This cookbook was notable for breaking away from traditional American fare, creating celebrated innovative American recipes and incorporating fresh ingredients. It now seems like a staid proposition, but twenty-five years ago, using fresh ingredients was a novel idea. While some cookbooks are formidable in size, The Silver Palate perfectly hits its stride with just enough recipes, covering finger food, fish, cheese, meat, dessert, vegetable and drink dishes. The most wonderful part of this book is that the recipes are uniformly fantastic. Chili for a Crowd, Minty Cucumber Salad, and the favorite, Chicken Marabella, are not only simple in their execution, they are delicious. Although I haven't made a dent in the dessert section, for fear of changing my entire diet solely to sweets, the dessert recipes I have tried are scrumptious. The book is enhanced with sidebars that explain how to cook herbs, or prepare edible flowers. The only cautionary note is that The Silver Palate includes a hefty amount of rich ingredients, which today, you can easily find substitute products and still get the same excellent results. Quill says: Cookbooks come and go, but this one will endure for the ages.

I have not delved as deeply into this cookbook as some of the others, but the recipes I have tried are tasty and generally a variation on a classic. While not solely vegetarian, there is plenty for a vegetarian to enjoy. There are a few in here that are in my regular rotation, including the egg salad with dill.

I learned how to cook beyond basics from this cookbook. I've made several recipes, including both of the tomato sauce recipes, and all have turned out well.

My softbound book is well used and I am very happy to have found a digital copy. This is not just a great cookbook, but also a great read. The anecdotes and side panel information are really what make this book stand out. The recipes always turn out well, a definite plus.

This original edition of this cookbook has been in my mother's kitchen for as long as I can remember. The recipes she found in it helped make it the warm, fragrant, delicious place that I remember. Now that I'm newly married, this new edition has found a permanent place in my kitchen. Some of my husband's and my favorite recipes are from this cookbook! It's a must-have for any kitchen.

While a number of the recipes tend to be pretentious, some of them are so simple they defy reason. The pasta with tomatoes and brie is absolutely fantastic and is so easy to put together, it's ridiculous. And the Chicken Marbella is fantastic as a buffet dish, but it's even better cold.
