From the authors of "The Silver Palate Cookbook" (2.2 million copies in print), here is "The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook," This time the authors focus on entertaining company and making any occasion special with the right ingredients and imagination.

With the same spirit and culinary daring that catapulted the first Silver Palate Cookbook into over 700,000 homes, the "Good Times Cookbook" brings to each season a sense of the memorable. Dinner a deux becomes a fireside clambake. Spring is heralded with early chEvres, curry bread, glasses of chablis. Summer sizzles with swordfish barbecue, while autumn refreshes with wild mushroom forays and the crunch of favorite nuts. And to round out the year, there?'s the splendid formality of Broiled Oysters with Arugula PurEe and an elegant Dacquoise.
Throughout, Sheila Lukins?'s charming illustrations highlight the more than 450 recipes, menus, and unexpected pairings. Sidebars and marginalia resolve the dilemmas of modern entertaining??whether Beaujolais is lusty enough for lamb, which cheeses start a meal and which end it with a flourish, how to make the presentation of food as lush as the taste. Main Selection of the "Quality Paperback Book" and "Book-of-the-Month Cooking and Crafts Clubs"; Selection of the "Book-of-the-Month Club," "Better Homes & Gardens Family Book Service," and "ABA Basic Booklist," Winner of a Duncan Hines IACP Cookbook Award. Over 1.3 million copies in print.

5 stars. This is a classic and my favorite cookbook for seasonal and holiday cooking. The ham for Easter is scrumptious with fruit around the ham. I make the Wild Mushroom Tart with Smoked zmozzarella every Thanksgiving as the appetizer for arriving hungry guests, and so much more.
