Top Customer Reviews
The Silver Palate opened on New York's Upper West Side --- then a culinary wasteland --- the same year that Dean & DeLuca opened downtown. And the foodworld suddenly changed.
In 1982, The Silver Palate published a cookbook. It presented 350 recipes, most of them pleasingly toothsome, all of them easy. It too rocked foodworld --- in 2007, having abandoned several grease-stained copies, I couldn't not buy the "Silver Palate Cookbook 25th Anniversary Edition".
"Ten: All the Foods We Love and 10 Perfect Recipes for Each" should also be around a quarter century from now --- and I suspect I'll have gone through several copies by then. It's not just that the recipes are simple, sane and sensible. It's that this book is built on a great idea.
And it's a simple idea: We may like many different kinds of food, but we have our favorites. For the carnivores, that's steaks, chops, burgers, ribs and stews. For fish-lovers, that's shrimp, lobster, clams and seafood salads. For pretty much everyone, it's mashed potatoes, pasta, corn and tomatoes. Add desserts, cocktails, salads and a few others, and you have 32 favorites.
But here's the smart part: In each category, Lukins presents ten recipes. Some are classic. Others play with the possibilities.Read more ›
It also makes a huge batch, making it the ideal freezer meal. You can bake half now and put the rest in the freezer for later.
I can't wait to try more recipes!
As if Lukins' own spectacular way with food wasn't enough, she includes a number of great "guest' recipes, including Schrafft's Hot Fudge Sauce, Jeremiah Tower's Black Truffled Hamburgers, Leonard Schwartz's Meat Loaf, Rosa Mexicano Guacamole and Judy Rodgers' Zuni Roast Chicken. Also some splurges, such as Lobster Mashed Potatoes, a Lobster Cobb and Brandade de Morue among the everyday dishes.
So far, all of the recipes I've tried have been winners.

Great cookbook - especially the meats section. The recipes are original, but use easy to find ingredients. I love it and am very happy with my purchase.Published on February 24, 2011 by Heidi
I was disappointed with this book. I think I was expecting 10 comfort type food recipes. Instead, these are a bit more complicated and fancier than I was looking for. SCPublished on January 26, 2010 by Sharon K. Coleman
