Review:

If you peruse the table of contents of Aromas and Flavors of Past and Present, you'll find such delectable dishes as Quo Vadis Cake, Perfumed Goose, Ribbons of Sarah Bernhardt, and Artichokes in the Greek Manner. This classic cookbook gathers more than 200 recipes that Alice B. Toklas, Gertrude Stein's companion, put to use in thrilling and entertaining the artists, glitterati, and literati of 1920s Paris. At times her dining guests included world-renowned notables Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Sherwood Anderson, and Matisse. This edition of the cookbook leaves both the recipes and Toklas's comments unchanged. Editor Poppy Cannon of House Beautiful magazine has added brief remarks in italics that help contemporary understanding of traditional cooking, as well as an introduction to the book that relates the history of the recipes' collector and the collection.

From the Back Cover:

Aromas and Flavors of Past and Present is a book for browsing and reading as well as for cooking. Alice B. Toklas presents over two hundred recipes - some simple, some elaborate, and others that are simply extravagant (mashed potatoes that call for an entire pound of butter). Poppy Cannon's annotations make the recipes easy to understand and use in the United States, but the recipes themselves appear just as Toklas wrote them - with a mix of the practical and philosophical. (6 X 9, 192 pages)
