We use this book every week, have a copy at our cottage and have given it to friends. It has been the foundation of many "cook together" dinner parties.

The binding on the paperback copy could be strengthened. Several pages of our original copy are falling out.

Format: Hardcover
I have owned and used this book for many years, and have found the recipes to be uneven - many are outstanding, and some are not so good. Given the size and scope of the book, this should not be a surprise. I am especially critical of some of the baked items, which do not seem to be carefully tested. However, I think it is worth having simply for the ideas - many of their recipes are quite inventive, and they have lots of fun ideas for entertaining. It is true that they are not low-cal, but you can easily omit much of the heavy cream or cheeses and use lighter alternatives. They also offer a nice range of recipes from easy to somewhat difficult, which makes it a nice choice for beginner to accomplished cooks. If you are the kind of cook who reads cookbooks for fun, and likes to "research" recipes before making things, this is a good one to have - definitely a "basic" essential for entertaining or for making easy haute cuisine at home. This one still ranks among my top choices of cookbooks.

Format: Hardcover
I have just bought my 2nd copies of almost all of the Silver Palate Cookbooks, including this one because mine were so dog-earred and stained from much loving use. I began with the first one the year it was published in the early 80s, when I was just out of college. My mother had taught me how to cook, but this took it to a whole new level of wonderful tastes. Many of the ingredients were very hard to find then, but most of them can now be found at the local grocery, which I give Lukins and Rosso at least some of credit for. I put them up there with great cooks whose work has affected millions of American Palates and a whole generation of baby-boomer "foodies". I think their cookbooks will endure.
I have never had a Silver Palate recipe bomb and the instructions are easy to follow. My only frustration is how they organize things sometimes, but I keep an index of my own cookbook favorites anyway. If you like to cook and unless your taste buds crave things made with velvetta, cream of mushroom soup and those canned crunchy onion rings, the Siver Palate books are a must have!

After years of owning and using this book it had to be replaced. Lamented it this time. It will be in my library when I move to Paris.

It is a classic among cookbooks. The recipes are uniformly excellent. If you love and have the time to cook and are not on the Southbeach diet or need to be on one,I highly recommend it.
