Long before Julia Child discovered French cooking, Alice B. Toklas was sampling local dishes, collecting recipes, and cooking for the writers, artists, and expats who lived in Paris between the wars. Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Wilder, Matisse, and Picasso shared meals at the home she kept with Gertrude Stein, who famously memorialized her in The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas.
The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book, however, is her true memoir: a collection of traditional French recipes that predates Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Toklas supplies familiar recipes such as coq au vin, bouillabaisse, and boeuf bourguignon, along with what is perhaps the earliest instructions for haschich fudge (“which anyone could whip up on a rainy day"), and she entertains with fascinating memories of Paris—Toklas' home for most of her life—and of rural France, Spain, and America.
Toklas's rich mixture of menus and memories of meals shared with such famous friends as Wilder, Picasso, and Hemingway, originally published in 1954.

Descripción New York, c.1954. Harper & Brothers. 288pp. Orange paper covered boards quarter bound in green cloth with gilt imprint, top hinge cracking, bruised corners and some edge wear, a couple of stains on the fore-edge, but generally good with tattered dj. A wonderful culinary memoire of the Gertrude Stein - Alice B. Toklas ménage in France, Spain and elsewhere and the extraordinary assortment of friends who frequented their table. If you were hoping for the infamous hashish "fudge" recipe of the British edition, you'll be disappointed - the American publisher just said no. Buy the book anyway because it's a splendid read, and if you really need that recipe, call me. Postpaid. Nº de ref. de la librería klEw250T53
