Description: Gladys Taber believes that half the fun of discovering a new recipe is in sharing it, and here she shares some of the best from her Stillmeadow and Still Cove kitchens. These recipes, many of them gathered from friends and correspondents, have been specially selected from her private collection.
Mrs. Taber writes, "I choose for my own kitchen recipes that are for the most part not too time-consuming... A simple meal, well cooked and seasoned with imagination, makes dining a pleasure." And from canapes to desserts, these dishes are as simple to make as they are good to eat.
Along with such delicacies as Duck Supreme, Lobster Omelet Stillmeadow and Gypsy Schnitzel, Mrs. Taber includes a host of Cape Cod specialties like Sam's Clams and Casserole Scallops. She has also repeated a few recipes which are most often requested by her readers, and among these are such old favorites as Pork Chops and Cabbage.
Along with her recipes Mrs. Taber offers menu suggestions and some of her own preferred methods of preparation. In the tradition of the best-selling Stillmeadow Cook Book, these recipes -- over 300 of them -- will be a welcome addition to any kitchen. Pamela Johnson's charming line drawings add to the pleasure of cooking with Gladys Taber.
