Dave Chasen, the founder of the famous Chasen's restaurant, who invented the Shirley Temple drink (Sprite mixed with grenadine) is also my great grandpa! This book shows photos of the restaurant and gives great recipes to his famous foods. This is a must for chili-lovers (the recipe for his world famous chili is in there!)

This book is probably more for the lovers of the golden era of Hollywood, rather than foodies. But if you, like me, long for the glamor of Hollywood's social life during its heyday, books like this help you to vicariously relive the days the you missed because you were born too damn late and too damn far away. From a very humble beginning, Chasen's grew into a venue that sat at the very center of Hollywood life in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. If you can't live in your own memories of going to places like Ciro's, Mocambo and Chasens, at least you can live through the memories of people who were there. PLUS you get a copy of the recipe of the most famous chili in America--the one that Liz Taylor had flown to Rome during the filming of "Cleopatra."

If you remember Liz Taylor flying Chasen's Chili to the set of Cleopatra you'll want this recipe.

I had the pleasure of dining at Chasen's original location before they closed. I enjoyed the "Hobo Steak" for dinner. This dish would be very difficult, if not impossible to recreate anywhere else, but definitely worth a try. Use lots of butter on the steak and toast, and lots of salt when you go thru the broiling process before you cook the slices table side.

As a big fan of "old Hollywood" and the classic glamour that I think is sadly missing from the industry today, I found this book to be a real treat. The stories and the photographs are wonderful, but it's clear how much food tastes have changed over the years. The only recipes that I would probably make are the ones for the famous chili and the chicken pot pie, but overall, it is a great read.
