Description: One hardly expects to find exquisite recipes and delicious wit served up so generously in a cookbook, but in this, as in many other aspects, The Store Cookbook is a tantalizing exception to most cookbooks. But then so are its authors and the site of their operations, The Store, a country-style food shop in Amagansett, Long Island, filled with elegant edibles and frequented by the Hamptons' summer people.
After years of planning fantastic picnics and catering some of New York's most elegant parties, the authors have agreed to part with the recipes for over 200 of their renowned dishes, including those for cold chicken tarragon, Ziti salad, ratatouille Nicoise, lobster-stuffed eggs, chicken bonne femme, and veal Alice B. Toklas, to name only a few.
In addition, Bert Greene and Denis Vaughan have supplied equally irresistible tidbits about such customers as Lee Radziwill, Leonard Bernstein -- remember that 50th birthday party? -- and Barbra Streisand.
An entire chapter devoted to the mouth-watering mousses for which The Store is justifiably famous and a section on egg dishes that is unparalleled -- all you need to make these and many other great dishes is value enough in a cookbook, or should be.
But when, in one book, you can also learn about Truman Capote's intimate parties and Bert Greene's grand- mother's amazing recipes, and a raft of Beautiful People, well, then, you have a cookbook that is a veritable banquet in itself.
