I received this book from my father-in-law, an aspiring chef and husband of a survivor. While we think many of the recipes are not that original, we value the authors use of time to help the cause. A little disappointed in the "celebrities" chosen, my wife and I would have preferred those who really know how to cook. For example: Britney Spears is not really known for her cooking (ie: her now defunct restaurant) though Emeril was a good choice. Katie Couric was a cute choice but does she really cook? I can honestly say that some of the recipes did look like renditions of many others I have seen in other cookbooks. However, the reason for the book is the reason to buy it.

This is a great cookbook and I thoroughly enjoyed the insight to what the stars profess to cook - and presumably eat. Only the likes of Anna Kourkikova could come close to making borscht look sexy. There is a good mix of all courses from a wide range of well known celebrities. I don't consider myself a star gazer but I know of most of the ones in the book. Several well known chefs also contributed their better known recipes. My favorite is the Benehina salad dressing from Chef Rocky Aoki. That stuff makes anything taste great. Most of the recipes are quite simple. Joan Rivers provides the penultimate in this category - toast. It's all I expected of her though. Probably the best thing about the book though is knowing I contributed to a good cause. After seeing it I bought several more for Christmas presents.

Tami and Kathy have put together a great cookbook -- but even more importantly a great project that is helping to raise awareness and funds for ovarian cancer and breast cancer.

At a Lifetime Television event at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, the chefs used the recipes from the book and we have never had such compliments about the food at one of our lunches. We served Florence Henderson's chicken picatta, Andre Agassi's herb roast turkey, Lynne and Brittany Spears's seafood pasta, Anastacia's apple pie, Mia Hamm's grilled vegetables and Evelyn Lauder's shrimp salad. We served this at a lunch for breast cancer survivors. Tami and Kathy were great to let us use the recipes from the book to further help the breast cancer cause.

The book is fun to read, filled with beautiful pictures and it is an important vehicle that is bringing many more people into helping to end ovarian and breast cancer.

This cookbook is a must have. I hosted a dinner party and each guest selected a recipe from the book. The recipes were easy to prepare and the food was absolutely delicious. Anne Currie's pasta recipe on the cover was sensational. The Rosemary Puff's were a big hit too. Flipping through the gorgeous photos and recipes may satiate one's curiousity as to what the 'star's' eat, but actually preparing these recipes with your own two hands and savoring them is even more satisfying. I plan on buying an abundance of these to give away for the holidays, knowing that the proceeds will benefit a great cause.

Star Palate is among the most beautiful books on the market today, in every sense of the word 'beautiful'. It has been published with the utmost care for the highest standard of authenticity and attention to detail, and with an unquestioned commitment to the two charities it supports. One hundred percent of net proceeds is donated to these two important causes. ALL the recipes have been tested to make sure they work, and also taste good! This book belongs on the coffee table AND in the kitchen, and will provide many hours of worthwhile companionship and time well-spent.

I've tried many of the recipes and they have come out very well so far. My favorites are the shepherd's pie, watermelon salad with fennel and the Mandarin Star martini. The proceeds from this book benefit ovarian and breast cancer research and that alone makes this cook book one of my all time favorites. Add that to the ease and great taste of the recipes and you have a true gem.

The recipes are easy to follow and the items come out true to the photos.

Pour yourself a Mandarin Star martini and get cooking today.
