The Birth of Boomer Cuisine!

Has it really been 25 years? Oh, dear. The Silver Anniversary of The Silver Palate Cookbook. An interesting interview on KCRW's Good Food:
Published in 1982, The Silver Palate Cookbook became a beloved classic that changed not only American cooking traditions but also the way we entertained. It taught home cooks to be daring with food, and how to use fresh, seasonal ingredients and artisanal breads and cheeses in a style that made it seem we'd been entertaining in this smart sophisticated way forever. Included in the James Beard Who's Who of American Food and inducted into the Cookbook Hall of Fame, The Silver Palate is being re-issued to commemorate its 25th anniversary. Authors Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins talk to Evan about their process in creating the cookbook and how they feel about its legacy.
Jessica's Biscuit has the 25th anniversary copies (both hard cover and soft) with autographed bookplates!

This is one of those "must have" cookbooks. If you don't have one in your working cookbook "stable", time to dash off and get one now.
