Review of The Silver Palate Cook Book

25th Anniversary edition Silver Palate Cook bookToday I would like to do a short book review of The Silver Palate Cook Book, 25 year Anniversary Edition, by Julee Rosso & Sheila Lukins.

A few days ago, a friend of mine, Anita-Clare Field suggested to me that I might be interested in looking at this book. Now if you are not familiar with Anita-Clare Field, she is a Food Maven and Gourmet of the highest level. She knows food and she shares this knowledge at  She also introduces us to and showcases other food Experts each week.  If you have a passion for all things Food, then you want to visit her blog.  So you can see why when she “suggested” I take a look at this book, I scheduled a trip to a local book store, and am I ever glad I did.

The 25th Anniversary Edition of Silver Palate Cook Book has 350 delectable recipes that are sure to please even the most demanding palate and yet written in such a way that any cook can create a wonderful meal for family and guests alike.

The book is full of great pictures and illustrations that are sure to delight the reader. One of the reasons I truly enjoy The Silver Palate Cook Book is that it is full of cooking tips, interesting quotes, and short stores as well as  information about the items you are about to cook. As soon as I purchased the book, I went home, and set down to read it. I read for about two hours before I could set the book down and get on with my schedule.

Once I saw Shelia’s mother’s recipe for Carrot Cake, I was hooked. It is a little different from the other recipes for carrot cake that I have but it will be much easier to make. (hint, she uses pureed cooked carrots, no more standing there grating  them)

There are way to many recipes to cover here, leave it to say, if you don’t already have a copy of Silver Palate cook book, 25th Anniversary Edition, and you like to cook, you will want to get a copy as soon as possible.

And be sure to visit where you will be treated to adventures in Dinning, daily.

Note: If you can’t find a copy of The Silver Palate Cook Book 25th Anniversary Edition visit Palate Cook Book where you can pick up a copy for about $14.00  which is about $5.00 below list price.

My latest book is FREE to download at: In The Kitchen. If you have a kindle or a table with the kindle app please get your copy before Monday when the price will return to $3.99

    Hi William,

    Love the idea of the 95 % vegetarian. I call my self a vegetarian because I din’t eat meat, but I love seafood, so I’m about a 60% vego.

    The idea of pureed carrot in the cake appeals to me. I’m over hard work and grating that many carrots is not fun.

    Thanks for the review. My boring recipe selections needs an overhaul. Will check it out. Thanks.

      I do enjoy carrot cake, but I always put it off because of the grating carrots, but this is a winning
      recipe and so easy to do, plus she has a recipe for cream cheese frosting that is as easy as 1,2,3

      The 5% non-vegetarian part of me might be slightly higher because of my enjoyment of fresh fish. I spend
      a fair amount of time in my home just north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where I can go down to the dock
      and meet the local fisherman as they return home each morning. I pick out the fish from the nights
      catch, they clean it for me and I take it home. In Mexico they eat fish for breakfast and lunch. At first
      I thought this strange, but then, when your getting it right off the boat, why put it away for 12 hours.

  2. Hey you, you are such a sweetie, thank you so very much. I have to say this book is by my bedside and I just love it. I cannot wait to make the navarin of lamb when Caro comes home from hospital :) Thanks once again William, you are a wonderful friend xx

      I really hope Caro is coming home soon. It’s a shame to have the Big new house and
      she is not there to enjoy it. I do enjoy lamb, however I am the only one in the house
      that does. However, at the moment I have a desire for corned beef so I do believe I
      Will try their Glazed corned beef. The wife is away in Mexico, so I want something
      that I can also make sandwiches from left overs. Today corned beef, perhaps next
      week the navarin of lamb.
