A Review of The Silver Palate Cookbooks

  1. My brother bought me two books of The Silver Palate-the one with the white cover and the red cover, for Christmas one year. I tried one recipe, I believe it was for zucchini bread. It called for 5 cups of oil!! I thought it was a bit much, but made the dessert according to the directions. It came out a big, greasy mess!! I never tried another recipe from either book again!!

      Oh that is a shame! I wonder if it was a typo in that edition. I looked and it is 1 1/2 cups in mine. Give it another try.

    My book says 1 1/4 cups oil for the zucchini bread. Silver Palate (white cover) was the first book I bought when I got married and I am still using to this day and it is the first book I go to when thinking of making something. My daughter is coming over shortly and we will be making the book’s banana cake.
