Cook the Book: 'Ten'
Have a craving? It's probably in Sheila Lukins' cookbook Ten: All the Foods We Love and Ten Recipes for Each. Co-author of the beloved Silver Palate Cookbook, Lukins anticipates any food craving any reasonable (or even unreasonable) person might have. The recipes are grouped under general titles like Sunday Suppers, Mashed Potatoes, Chocolate, etc. There's even a section on Seafood Salads for those inclined to have cravings for them.
Fans of Silver Palate and New Basics cookbooks should think of Ten as a condensed version of the two. There's endless variety here with a preparation for every mood and season. Every day this week, we'll be fulfilling your cravings with recipes for "mashed" sweet shell peas, simple honey spareribs, Lukins' famous chocolate mousse, and more. —Grace Kang
