Now you can put some gam in your holiday ham withThe Dead Celebrity Christmas Cookbook. When it comes to holiday fun, the stars of Hollywood's Golden Age knew how to make merry - on stage, on screen, and especially on the dinner table. With The Dead Celebrity Christmas Cookbook - the follow-up to his international sensationThe Dead Celebrity Cookbook- Frank DeCaro shows how to put the kitsch into your holiday kitchen as he salutes a quirky collection of celebrities who are gone, but fondly remembered every year at Christmastime.

Filled with pop culture ruminations and genuine (and genuinely delicious) recipes of the stars,The Dead Celebrity Christmas Cookbookhails such movie classics asIt's a Wonderful LifeandWhite Christmas, gives three cheers for such time-honored animated gems asFrosty the SnowmanandHow the Grinch Stole Christmas, and puts such offbeat offerings asThe Star Wars Holiday Specialin their rightful place - the dining room!

Serving up such chapters as 'Miracle Whip on 34th Street,' 'Eat Meat in St. Louis,' and 'Munch of the Wooden Soldiers,' DeCaro dishes up an attic-full of culinary delights garnished with his signature wit and cultural observations. Feast on such temptations as Peggy Lee's Holiday Halibut Casserole, Burl Ives's Stuffed Leg of Goat Hawaiian, Nat 'King' Cole's Ham Loaf, Barbara Stanwyck's Christmas Kipfels, Dinah Shore's Fruitcake, and Spike Jones's Molasses Jumbles. Even the Grinch himself - Boris Karloff - shares a recipe! Wash them all down with Edmund Gwenn's Christmas Cup and John Lennon's Cocoa. WithThe Dead Celebrity Christmas Cookbook, you also can decide which makes for a better New Year's Eve, Guy Lombardo's Lobster Lombardo or Dick Clark's Spicy Turkey Meatloaf. There's nothing auld about them!

The book is the ultimate hostess gift, and one that won't get buried in the cupboard. Placing the accent on mirth - and casting a forgiving eye toward Santa's girth -The Dead Celebrity Christmas Cookbookpromises to get even the biggest Scrooge in the holiday spirit and liven up any gathering. It'll have you saying your 'ho, ho, ho's' in true Hollywood style, this year and for many years to come.
