The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook
Judy Gelman and Peter Zheutlin
You don’t have to watch the popular show Mad Men to get something out of The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook. This period cookbook really captures the 1960’s Manhattan restaurant, cocktail and home cooking scene. From Oyster’s Rockefeller to Chicken Kiev to Pineapple Upside-down cake, there’s something in it for every home cook. The book does a terrific job of tying popular period recipes into specific episodes and 1960’s New York. A definite recommendation for Mad Men fans. I’m thinking a kick off party for the Mad Men show with some of the book’s cocktails and canapes is in order for March!
