Sheila Lukins, chef, cooking teacher, and food writer, has brought us such classics as The Silver Palate Cookbook (which was inducted into the James Beard Foundation's Cookbook Hall of Fame), The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook, The New Basics Cookbook and the All Around the World Cookbook, all of which have a total of 5 1/2 million books in print. Her newest cookbook, The USA Cookbook is dedicated to the best of American cuisine. Sheila spent the last three years traveling the country, collecting recipes from their sources. The result is a 624-page celebration with over 600 recipes, plus sidebars, tips, and ingredient information. Sheila has a wealth of information at her fingertips and she'll be right here, ready to tap it in to her computer in response to your questions. And, if you do join us, you might win a copy of her brand new cookbook we'll be giving away 3 at the end of the chat.
