The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book

The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book

How did Gertrude Stein like her apple pie? What did Alice cook when foods were rationed during World War II? What did Picasso eat when he was dealing with digestion problems? What was the Lost Generation eating and drinking during those lavish Parisian parties?

Half cookbook and half memoir, this book is full of beautiful descriptions of the meals shared by Alice B. Toklas and Gertrude Stein, a window into their amazing lives. For anyone with an interest in the Lost Generation and/or food, this book is for you.

“A book of character, fine food and tasty human observation." —The New Yorker Featuring the recipes and memories of Alice B. Toklas—a prominent American expat who lived in France and was Gertrude Stein’s lover—The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book is a precursor to the classic works of famed French chefs Julia Child and M.F.K. Fisher , and stands alongside Stein’s The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas as a celebration of the fascinating life and times of the woman James Beard called, “one of the really great cooks of all time.”
