Compiled by: Mrs. Howard Keel & Linda F. Radke
Publisher: Five Star Publications
"Now you can make the same Beef Stew with Walnuts that Betty Ford made for former President Gerald Ford, serve Beau Bridges Great Guac with corn chips at your next super bowl game, impress your friends with Ruth Buzzi's Cheese Blintzes or Dennis Weaver's Cheese Nut Loaf ...," Mrs. Howard Keel and Linda F. Radke write in their book, "Legends in the Kitchen - Celebrity Recipes for a Cause."
At one hundred and fifty pages, this oversized, square paperback book is targeted toward readers who want to collect and make recipes that famous celebrities enjoy. Although the front and back jacket cover are in color, all photographs inside are black and white.
After a foreword by Stefanie Powers, there is a joint acknowledgement and dedication page by both compilers. The table of contents is divided into eight sections of main dishes, vegetables and sides, soups, salads, desserts, appetizers and dips, breads and rolls, and miscellaneous. Besides the title of the recipe, the celebrities name is in bold next to it.
With almost sixty recipes from about fifty celebrities, a photo of the famous star, sometimes with a very short story about the recipe, is on the left side of the page while the recipe with needed ingredients and instructions on the right side. When no photograph is available, there is a quaint saying, usually about food.
At the end of the book is an index identical to the table of contents, not in alphabetical order by personalities or recipe names. Also included is full page article about the publishing company owned by one of the compilers along with an order form.Read more ›
A gratis copy was received for my review.
The whole book has a fun retro feel to it, so it can be enjoyable to read through it even if you aren't ready to cook. Each of the recipes includes a photo of the actor and some also include personal information about them or the recipe.
One of the stand out recipes for me is Larry Hagman's Fire and Ice (vanilla ice cream, oranges, honey and cayenne)
This would be a fun gift for a cook or a fan of classic movies and tv shows.
