From the authors of The Silver Palate Cookbook
(2.2 million copies in print), here is The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook
. This time the authors focus on entertaining company and making any occasion special with the right ingredients and imagination.
With the same spirit and culinary daring that catapulted the first Silver Palate Cookbook into over 700,000 homes, the Good Times Cookbook brings to each season a sense of the memorable. Dinner a deux becomes a fireside clambake. Spring is heralded with early chEvres, curry bread, glasses of chablis. Summer sizzles with swordfish barbecue, while autumn refreshes with wild mushroom forays and the crunch of favorite nuts. And to round out the year, thereís the splendid formality of Broiled Oysters with Arugula PurEe and an elegant Dacquoise.
Throughout, Sheila Lukinsís charming illustrations highlight the more than 450 recipes, menus, and unexpected pairings. Sidebars and marginalia resolve the dilemmas of modern entertainingówhether Beaujolais is lusty enough for lamb, which cheeses start a meal and which end it with a flourish, how to make the presentation of food as lush as the taste.
