What is being said about “Kitchen Classics From the Philharmonic” —
“Ms. LeBell’s long-lasting and intimate relationships with virtually everyone and everything to do with the Philharmonic, as well as her love of good food and her encyclopedic knowledge of recorded music, make this a very special volume, larded with love and spiced with saucy sophistication. Al Hirschfeld’s signature illustrations provide the deliciously frothy icing on the cake.”
“The humor, intelligence, generosity, and charm June possesses make this book unique. She serves up each personality in the most personal of all possible ways: in his or her own voice. The delightful anecdotes peppered throughout the book have as their counterpoint favorite recipes contributed by each performer. We know their music, but now we learn another side of them, and they become friends.”
“And as the proverbial icing on the cake, this book is graced with the incomparable caricatures of our beloved Al Hirschfeld… For me, it is a deeply sentimental and personal book and I think it will prove to be so for everyone who reads it and, most of all, for anyone who cooks from it.”

“The recipes all sound scrumptious, and June’s cheeky and charming comments and suggested musical accompaniments add the perfect condiments to each selection. What a delicious way to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the delectable New York Philharmonic!” – – – Eugenia Zukerman, flutist, writer and journalist ( )
