Format: Hardcover
This is an enjoyable book for a fans of Hellman's who also like to cook. She collaborated on it with her acolyte Peter Feibleman shortly before her death in the mid-eighties, and the reminisences and food insights that frame the recipes in her half of the book (it's split into "His Way" and "Her Way") have the fuzzy yet engaging and opinionated quality that characterizes her memoirs. I've cooked out of this book many times. One chocolate cake recipe that involves bourbon and almonds is a particular favorite of ours. Reading EATING TOGETHER, you can almost hear Hellman barking at you from beyond the grave for daring to cut into a baked Idaho potato with a knife, or failing to save the duck fat, or slicing the Virginia ham too thickly. But great cooks do tend to feel strongly about the preparation and serving of good food. If Hellman fabricated in her memoirs, it can at least be said of her that she knew her way around in the kitchen, and turned out two or three classics of the American theatre.

This woman was a character and a pretty good cook. She and Dashiell Hammett hit the bottle pretty good so you'll find recipes like Strawberries with Grand Marnier, Iced Café Diable, and Mississippi Mud Cake with bourbon. But there is the history of the old dame which is rather unique and there are good recipes with other writers of the time like Dorothy Parker, Art Buchwald, Barbara Hersey, Walter Cronkite and tidbits of juicy information and juicy food.

In this cookbook famed playwrights and authors Hellman and Feibleman fondly share entertaining stories of worldly adventures and gourmet recipes. Split into sections, Her Way and His Way, each chapter is precluded with the context or theme of the recipes within.

I didn't learn much about either of them except that they seemed to find some kind of companionship or comfort as friends...the cooking aspect wasn't much
