Description
First published in 1940 and now back in print with a new foreword by Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, this charming little French cookbook, a collection of recipes by noteworthy writers, Hollywood and Broadway celebrities, renowned socialites, royalty--and even a couturier and restaurateur or two--is available again. This edition is an exact facsimile of the original, down to the red and white cloth gingham case, but with a new preface about the book's history, and Carter's essay. There's also a select bibliography of contributors--from Katharine Hepburn and Christian Dior to Eleanor Roosevelt and Charlie Chaplin--created especially for today's reader. An affordable, adorable package, it's a great gift for cooks of all levels, francophiles, and pop-culture mavens alike. If you liked the delicious recipes from Julie & Julia, you'll love Specialites de la Maison. An instant collectible.
