The Silver Palate Cookbook team is back with a book that focuses on food for celebrations. Sections include Mother’s Day, Derby Weekend, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving,Christmas, New Years, and all sorts of social occasions that might call for a party. While many, perhaps most, of the recipes seem a bit involved, I suppose it is only appropriate that a special occasion calls for special effort and special foods. Quite a few recipes qualify as “sinful,” such as the “Fabulous French Toast,” “Poached Apples Stuffed with Gorgonzola,” “Banana Bourbon Cake with Bourbon Creme Anglaise,” and “Dacquoise with Chocolate Ganache.”

Many of the recipe pages have sidebars with additional info and tips, like the four categories of game animals, what wines to use for cooking, suggestions for tea sandwiches, and how to make holiday cheese wreaths.

For those with the time and energy to entertain in grand style, this book will definitely fill the bill. ( )

I was trying to understand why I kepy this when I rated it only two stars.

Well, probably because there are a lot of interestingrecipes with some of my favourite ingredients.

Then why only two stars? Because of the overwhelming number of recipes that have misleading titles, peculiar mixtures of ingredients, recipes that call for specific brand products ... I won't go into the things they call 'curry'. Sometimes they mention what changes they have made to ethnic recipes, but sometimes they just offer up their altered version without a comment. If you feel tempted to roast a goose, be aware that it will release a lot of (wonderful) goose fat. Vegetables that have been cooked in the pan will be overladen with it. A waste of both the fat and the veggies.

And of course all the cutesy ideas for a party.

I think I will rip out a few of the interesting recipes. The rest of this will land in the paper recycling. ( )

It was a party
Just to be near you

It was the best time
And we believed
That it would last
forever
