Neiman Marcus Taste
Timeless American RecipesUnknown - 2007
Neiman Marcus first opened its doors to shoppers in 1907, and since then it has been a fixture of American elegance and style. Now Neiman Marcus opens another door, this time to their acclaimed kitchens, with their 100th anniversary cookbook--a retrospective of the timeless, legendary dishes that have satisfied generations of Americans over the past fifty years. The Zodiac, Neiman Marcus's first restaurant, debuted in the company's Dallas flagship store in 1953. It was a sensation, combining the indulgences of great shopping with satisfying dining. Over the years, the initial Director of Restaurants, the renowned Helen Corbitt, elevated the culinary stature of the Neiman Marcus food operation from comforting and delicious to elegant and iconic. Taking up where Helen Corbitt left off, Executive Chef Kevin Garvin has continued to build on this foundation and to enhance the Neiman Marcus reputation for superb food and wonderful recipes. More than a celebratory collection,Neiman Marcus Tastewill delight not only the store's loyal devotees but also home cooks across the country with more than 110 recipes for every occasion. Ranging from Sunday supper favorites, such as Potato and Bacon Soup and Chicken Tetrazzini, to dinner-party showstoppers, including Lobster Macaroni and Cheese and Pear Galettes with Caramel Sauce and Coconut Ice Cream, the recipes in this collection are both nostalgic and innovative. And Garvin doesn't forget to include Neiman Marcus's timeless classics, such as Savory Parmesan Popovers, Garlic and Herb Monkey Bread, and Chocolate Velvet Cake. Neiman Marcus Tasteis truly a commemoration of the Neiman Marcus traditions of sophistication, elegance, and luxury. An ode to 100 extraordinary years, this lavishly illustrated cookbook is both an homage to Neiman Marcus's culinary tradition and a compilation of the creative, contemporary dishes on the menu today.
