This is a great cookbook for many reasons:
1) I considered myself more of a virtual cook, than an actual cook. Once I purchased Women of Great Taste, that changed. I actually cook recipes now rather than just talking about how good the recipe might be.
2) I always get rave reviews when I serve recipes from this book.
3) This is a beautiful book with terrific recipes. I have recommended it to many friends and family members.
4) Proceeds from Junior League books support community projects.
5) I use it more than any other cookbook I own, and I own dozens of cookbooks.
You cannot buy this book anywhere cheaper than from Amazon.

Every December I prepare a luncheon for my husband's staff at the University of Florida, in Gainesville. I had already planned my menu, but when I received this book from my twin sister in Overland Park, Kansas for our Birthday I changed my whole menu and chose everything from this cookbook. The recipes are simple yet very elegant in their presentation. I know his office staff will really enjoy all that I've chosen to make. I especially loved the quotes at the bottom of the page as well as the beautifully decorated book cover. Anyone who loves to cook will love this book!

I give this cookbook only four stars, for all the wrong reasons. I am a member of the JLW, and I would feel wrong giving the highest possible rating to something I helped produce. It really is five star material for the person who likes to cook and entertain, and the person who likes to send a cookbook to share great recipes with freinds who are also kitchen monkeys. I can say this because I have enjoyed the wit and wisdom as much as the menus and recipes. I was terribly impressed with the books contents when I visited an out-of-town relative (who's a very serious cook, and let's just say, "particular") to whom I sent the book, when she cordially presented one of the full menus at a dinner party. Great find, great gift. All I can add are some of my personal favorites: Hummus: excellent (and easy as pie!) Wild Mushroom Bisque Too many wonderful salads, but my fav is Pasta Pecan Salad ... it is a book that should not be judged by its cover! Both Peasant Bread and Liberty Loaves ... and all those muffins! Pork Tenderloin with Mustard Tarragon Sauce Lasagna Florentine Zucchini au Gratin Cappuccino Brownies: unbelievable!

I love this cookbook. Not only are the recipes excellent, but the quotes and design are wonderful. Being from Wichita, I am so proud of the women of the Junior League for producing such a high-end, funny and classy book. Bravo!

A unique concept portraying women of great taste in history, who have influenced the worlds of art and commerce, theology and government, style and cusine. These women of style and courage whose impeccable taste transcended geograhpic boundaries and popular opinion to create brave new worlds. Great cooking is a melting pot of fine food and terrific ideas and where better to find this amalgam that is today's hottest cookbook. This tongue-and-check book is a sure winner! Enjoy reading whimsical quotes throughout the book while making delicious recipes. It is a trendy, but classical cookbook that is sure to bring flair to your life

Verified Purchase
This is a delightful collection of unusual yet easy to prepare recipes. I have many, many cookbooks. This is my new favorite and THE cookbook that I will reach for when company is coming for dinner. For example, the "Cauliflower Panache" consists of cauliflower flowerets with a puree of brocolli, has a lovely, unique presentation, and is very, very tasty.

I've read many cookbooks over the years, and I must say that this is without a doubt an award-winning book! I was constantly floored by the dynamic imagery of the recipes. This was only surpssed by the smile of satisfaction on all the faces of the guests at my most recent dinner party. I highly recommend this book to all human beings on planet earth.
