    Long before Julia Child discovered French cooking, Alice B. Toklas was sampling local dishes, collecting recipes, and cooking for the writers, artists, and expats who lived in Paris between the world wars. Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Wilder, Matisse, and Picasso shared meals at the home she kept with Gertrude Stein, who famously memorialized her in The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. Alice’s cookbook, however, is her true memoir: a collection of traditional French recipes that predates child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Toklas supplies familiar recipes such as coq au vin, bouillabaisse, and boeuf bourguinon, along with what is perhaps the earliest instructions for hashish fudge, along with iridescent memories of Paris – and of rural France, Spain, and America. Index o Recipes. 288p.
