- Sales Rank:9,040,341
- Publication Date:April 30, 1999
A conventionally organized cookbook with unconventional delicious food. The author shares all of the many discoveries she has made on her journey from complete food amateur to seasoned professional. 150 full-color and b&w photos.
Garten opened her upscale take-out shop in East Hampton 20 years ago, and its still thriving today (some might say that its prices are what are legendary). Many of the recipes she shares in her lavishly illustrated book 200 color photographs are rather simple, and a number of them are familiar: Hummus and Guacamole, Baked Ham and Roast Chicken. Each chapter also includes an idea for a party platter for a buffet, from Fruit and Cheese to Country Desserts. An attractive book, but there's not much new here; for area libraries and others with large entertaining collections. Recommended for most collections.
