Newman's Own Cookbook Hardcover – November 4, 1998
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
The thing of it is Paul Newman and his pal and partner, A. E. Hotchner, really did bottle Newman's salad dressing in a basement as Christmas gifts to friends and family. They really did ignore all manner of sane, well-reasoned advice from food production experts, and went commercial on a $40,000 budget. And they really, truly have, in the course of 15 years, grossed $710 million on sales of salad dressing, salsa, pasta sauce, and popcorn, giving away to various charities and just causes the $100 million they realized in after-tax profit.
"We are told," A. E. Hotchner writes in the introduction to Newman's Own Cookbook, "that we are the only corporation in the world that gives away all of its profits and starts with zero dollars in the bank on the first of each fiscal year." The same invigorating spirit can be found in the pages of Newman's Own Cookbook. In fact, it can be removed as a recipe, cooked up, and served for dinner. Why have grilled t-bone steak when you can have Matthew Broderick's Grilled T-Bone Steak with Sweet Onion Marmalade and Campfire Mustard Sauce?
With photos, endless quips, and chapters that include Starters, Soups, Stews and Chilis, Main Courses, Pastas, Pizza, Breads and Snacks, Desserts, and Rice, Vegetables and Side Dishes, Newman's Own Cookbook provides a rich compendium of family faves. Special guests the likes of Tony Randall (Grilled Veal Chop with Bourbon-Cracked Black Pepper Sauce), Julia Roberts (Fresh Peach Crisp), Gene Shalit (Spaghetti Carbonara), and Whoopi Goldberg (Big Bad Ass Beef Ribs) fill in around the edges. Good people. Good food. --Schuyler Ingle
About the Author

Paul Newman and his friend A. E. Hotchner filled old bottles with their homemade salad dressing to give to friends as Christmas gifts. The salad dressing was such a hit that they went on to make a company that started with salad dressings. after all these years many hundreds of millions of dollars have been given to charity.
Paul Newman, and his friend AJ Hotchner, have put together over 125 of their favorite recipes in this book. this us a great cookbook because it brings back some fond memories of meals gone by. 'The Newmanburger' and 'Nell Newman's Cauliflower and Parmesan Soup' are favorites. Robert Redford contributed his Lamb Chili with Black Beans, Julia Roberts's Fresh Peach Crisp, Matthew Broderick's Grilled T-bone Steak with Sweet Onion Marmalade and Campfire Mustard Sauce, and Whoopi Goldberg's Big Bad Ass Beef Ribs. Of note, I have heard Whoopie say recently she only knows how to roast turkey, so have no idea where her recipe came from. There are so many good recipes, and the money goes to the Paul Newman charities, now his daughter, Nell is in charge. I saw her speak at our local Food COOP a few years ago, and she is a very talented CEO.
A superb cookbook with much history.
Recommended Highly. prisrob 06-07-15
