Ball point pen on todays newsprint

First published in 1940 "Spécialités de la Maison" Harper Collins 19.99 contains recipes from celebrities of the day. The book was out of print until Christine Schwartz Hartley, stubbled upon a copy in a used-book store and gave new life to the vintage cookbook. It sounds like fun to be able to serve Salvador Dalí's Neptune Nonsense, Helen Keller’s Lobster Newburg or one of the other 200 recipes contributed by famous people like Eleanor Roosevelt, Laurence Olivier and Katharine Hepburn.

    Great picture and interesting story about the cookbook. By the way, I just saw a play "Eleanor Roosevelt and Lorena Hickok: A Love Story" based on letters written to and from each woman over several decades. Also an interesting story.
