Some of my favorites are Bobbies Roast Chicken (ginger, mustard, lemon, mmmm!), June's Apple Crisp, some of the unusual and festive winter vegetables dishes (how about Brussels sprouts with maple and walnut vinaigrette or the Ruby Radishes?).
Christmas is very special indeed with the Red and Green Christmas Salad (spinach, avocado and pomegranates) with Warm Champagne Vinegar Dressing.
Buy it, you will feel inspired to be more creative with your cooking!
The book is beautifully organized by the seasons. You'll find fancier illustrations elsewhere, but you won't find better recipes for entertaining. Rosse and Lukins developed these recipes for their shop in New York City and each one that I've tried is a hit. So many cookbooks have mediocre recipes but you can depend on this one.
In addition to the clearly written directions, illustrations and side bar hints and tips assist in ensuring that you achieve good results every time. The garnishing and presentation ideas provided also elevate the look and feel of even the most informal or impormptu event.
Thematically and seasonally arranged, you can follow the pre-planned menu's developed by Rosso & Luskins or pick through and choose those that appeal to you most.
The splatters and stains on my copy confirm that this is a much loved, much used book in my collection. I partucularly enjoy the Marinated Shrimp flavored with herbs and citurs and the Pate Mousse with Bacon and Walnuts is divine!
If you don't have this book, and you should, buy a used paperback copy for just a few dollars more than the Kindle version. So much more satisfying!
