R.I.P. Shelia Lukins

The Silver Palate Cookbook has sold over 2.5 million copies. That's a lot of chicken liver pate, boys and girls.

When I first started getting into cooking in the mid-80's, the Silver Palate Cookbook was one hot commodity. The couple who I worked for at the time complained that "if I eat one more recipe from that book at a dinner party..." But they had it on their shelf too and used the recipes in their catering work. It was what people wanted.

So thanks Shelia for goosing us in the behind and getting us to try a whole new world of party food...
