about

“A book of character, fine food and tasty human observation."
The New Yorker<_o3a_p>

<_o3a_p> 

Featuring the recipes and memories of Alice B. Toklas—a prominent American expat who lived in France and was Gertrude Stein’s lover—The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book is a precursor to the classic works of famed French chefs Julia Child and M.F.K. Fisher , and stands alongside Stein’s The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas as a celebration of the fascinating life and times of the woman James Beard called, “one of the really great cooks of all time.”

Alice B. Toklas was Gertrude Stein's "secretary-companion." For many years they lived together in France, Toklas cooking while Stein was writing. She is memorialized in Stein's most famous book,The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas.

Editorial Reviews

“A cookbook that is delightful by way of its fine food has been made doubly pleasurable by the addition of shrewd worldly comment, by reminiscences, personalities, anecdotes, by the strong characters of the Misses Stein and Toklas.”
