I don't know how anyone looking through this book could resist it -- recipes like Orange Rosemary Muffins with Sliced Duck Breast (you can skip the duck; the muffins are great with any salad); scrumptious Bruschetta; lovely, peppercorn-studded Marinated Goat Cheese; savory Summer Vegetable Couscous; mouthwatering Ham, Cheese, Mushroom and Walnut Salad; Tri-Berry Muffins with their sugar-crackled tops; addictive Orange Shortbread; and Honey Herb Rolls, my favorite bread of all time (toss any leftover herb-oil mixture with pasta and grated Asiago). This and Ms. Chase's Cold-Weather Cooking are sure to become much-used favorites.

I have made over 1/2 the recipes in this book, and they have all been terrific! The only cookbook better than this one is her "Cold Weather Cooking". I have over 3,000 cookbooks in my collection, but I keep returning to Sarah Leah Chase's books over and over.

I'm a personal chef and caterer and this is one of my mainstay cookbooks. Everything I've ever cooked from it has been distinctive and wonderful--especially the Shrimp Salad recipe that has Pernod in it. The recipes are totally reliable and great for entertaining. Beautiful, delicious, wonderful use of good ingredients.

There is not a better book on the subject of summer entertaining than this one. I use it constantly, always to great applause from my guests. So often have I received requests for recipies from this book, I have taken to giving it as gifts to all of my friends! The Scallop Puffs are a staple at my parties... This book is a "must have"!

We all have Sarah Leah Chase's Cold Weather Cooking and Open House Cookbooks; my three sisters and me. We love them and wish she would write more. Where is she, anyway. For years those recipes have been at the forefront of our cooking, although, we have always been states away from one another, we could always talk about cooking in common from Sarah's cookbooks. You will love them.

Ms. Chase has a fresh, innovative style in her writing and recipes. I enjoyed reading this book as well as trying out some of the yummy, creative dishes. As I was researching Ina Garten's website, I discovered that Ina herself finds this cookbook to be indispensible in her own food preparation and also in sparking her culinary creativity. If Ina says it's good, it's gotta be good!!!

I lost almost all of my cook book collection to hurricane Katrina. This is the book that I replaced first! I was so happy to find it here at Amazon since I have been looking for it for awhile. The recipes are those that I use over and over and they never fail to please.....Ms. Chase has a wonderful way with food that is both comforting and elegant. You will enjoy this book!

I just made the pumpkin spice muffins and vegetable frittata for a brunch and my guests went nuts. Everyone has asked for the recipes. They looked and tasted spectacular.
