This book was almost exactly what I expected it to be. Well worth the money and all for a good cause (applause, applause!). The photography was absolutely stunning, and the recipes were unpretentious. Even those of us who don't have a Park Avenue address can adopt both the recipes and decorative arrangements for our own gatherings at home. I will very likely purchase future printings as well as recommend this book to friends.

Not particularly impressed with this book, although the purchase was for an excellent cause. Photographs were fun, and comments from individuals so over the top as to be quite humorous. However, not a book for foodies. Recipes were banal, nothing new, and frankly boring. Had the purchase not been to benefit The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre, I would have been seriously disappointed.

Anytime I get an opportunity to glimpse the lives of the uber-rich, I have to go for it. I find it so intriguing. This book was written for the ladies of pedigree in New York, but we are lucky enough to be voyeurs into their society and see what foods they serve and how. I'm not saying we want to be them, I think we just like a glimpse of that life, and this cookbook offers that.
If you want a cookbook for family dinner night, this is not the one for you. But if you're looking for a cookbook with pretty pages and extravagant menus, give this a try. You can spend a Saturday afternoon lost in this treasure of a book.

Love this book! If you're a gourmet cook who likes to fuss with with many ingredients, may not be for you; however, for the rest of us who like to put an elegant meal on the table for guests, it's definitely a winner.

I love this book! Everything that I have made from it has worked and been delicious. The photography is inspiring . The broccoli soup, Texas Corn Pudding, Bibb and Avocado Salad and I could go on. Nothing is too fancy and nothing is too hard and it all makes you believe that presentation, and not slaving in the kitchen, is everything!
