Description: Park Avenue, that fashionable address, implies a grace and elegance born of cosmopolitan sophistication and urbane taste famous the world over. This lavish cookbook contains over 300 recipes that capture the special epicurean pleasures that are the essence of the Park Avenue style of living. 

For some people, and Sara Stamm is one of them, entertaining is more fun than almost anything else. But you don't have to live in a Park Avenue duplex to take your cue from one of New York's most accomplished hostesses as she gives menu suggestions and complete recipes for all manner of four-star gatherings. Everything from luncheons, teas, and formal dinners to cocktail parties, a wedding reception, midnight suppers, picnics, even traditional Thanksgiving and Christmas feasts. 

Within the pages of The Park Avenue Cookbook you'll find La Caravelle restaurant's recipe for billi-bi soup; step-by-step instructions on the way to make the Ritz' heavenly chicken hash; the secret ingredients of La Grenouille's sublime salade aux haricots verts; and La Folie's feathery chocolate mousse. You'll be cooking with lobster and champagne, caviar and truffles, whipping up souffles, and slinging the greatest short order delicacy of all time, the Park Avenue Hamburger. 

The Park Avenue Cookbook cordially invites you to make your social affairs -- whether they be intimate romantic dinners or gala events, enjoyable and memorable occasions, wherever you may live.
