Something Old, Something New : Oysters Rockefeller, Walnut Souffle, and Other Classic Recipes Revisited
by Tamar Adler and Mindy Dubin


Overview - The award-winning, bestselling author of An Everlasting Meal "revitalizes classics and long-forgotten dishes, bringing them into this century with verve and ease" (Bon Appetit) in this "lovely and literary" (Vogue.com) cookbook.

Many dishes that once excited our palates--like oysters Rockefeller, steak Diane, cheese and walnut souffl s--have disappeared from our tables and, in some cases, from our memories. Creating a unique culinary history, Tamar Adler, a Vogue and New York Times writer and Chez Panisse alum, has collected more than a hundred recipes from old cookbooks and menus and enlivened, updated, and simplified them.

Adler's approach to these dishes involves ample use of acid and herbs, pared down techniques, and contemporary ways of serving. Seasonal menus, wine pairings suggested by sommelier Juliette Pope, gorgeous watercolor drawings by artist Mindy Dubin, and a foreword by influential food critic Mimi Sheraton add to this "personal, nostalgic journey...as much about the writing as it is about the cooking" (The New York Times Book Review). Adler has created a unique culinary history, filled with delicious recipes and smart, witty prose. It is destined to become a modern classic.
