Silver Palate Cookbook author comes to Phoenix

Twenty-five years ago, when Sheila Lukins and Julee Rosso published the The Silver Palate Cookbook, they had no idea it would make them famous. But people took to it for both its accessibility as well as its variety of sophisticated dishes made easy. Now a classic, their recipe collection has gained a second wind, thanks to a new paperback anniversary edition.

Tomorrow evening -- Wednesday, the 16th, at 6 p.m. -- Lukins will appear at Duck & Decanter, 1651 E. Camelback, for a special "Dining and Signing" event sponsored by Changing Hands Bookstore.

Listen to Lukins share some culinary wisdom, get your book signed, and schmooze with fellow cooks over hors d'oeuvres. Drinks, nibbles, and a copy of the book are included in the $42 pre-registration price. Call Duck & Decanter at 602-274-5429 to get in on tomorrow's action.
