(Food Writing) Toklas, Alice B. The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book.


Illus. with drawings by Sir Francis Rose. Jacket. First American Edition. NY: Harper & Bros., [1954].

The cookbook made famous in England by the addition of Brian Gyson's hash brownies, removed by Toklas in the American edition. Still, there's plenty to love herein, including saddle of mutton maintenon, bouillabase, veal marengo, etc. All written in Toklas' inimitable prose. Price clipped, jacket spine a bit dulled, chipping to jacket spine head, minor stain to jacket spine foot area, else very good.
