The stories interwoven with the recipes from Alice B. Toklas are just perfection!
My hubby and I are big foodies, so anytime we can experience something new, even if it is from decades ago, is amazing. The simple yet delicious Peaches Glacees recipe is exactly what we need for a summer dessert. I can't wait to try more recipes and celebrate all that is Alice B. Toklas!
From the Cover...A beautiful new edition of the classic culinary memoir by Alice B. Toklas, Gertrude Stein’s romantic partner, with a new introduction by beloved culinary voice Ruth Reichl.
When Alice B. Toklas was asked to write a memoir, she initially refused. Instead, she wrote The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book, a sharply written, deliciously rich cookbook memorializing meals and recipes shared by Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Wilder, Matisse, and Picasso—and of course by Alice and Gertrude themselves. This much-loved, culinary classic is sure to resonate with food lovers and literary folk alike
