Wolf in Chef's Clothing

Wolf in Chef's Clothing

Interest in lounge culture is nearly as high as during the golden age of the '50s and '60s. And even lounge lizards have to eat - and drink. This humorous guide to entertaining, first published in 1950, is a retro period piece that will satisfy the most discriminating tastes, no matter how pickled. Recipes are presented entirely in pictures, step by step, from conception to perfection - and all with deliciously dry wit. Easy-to-make breakfasts-for-two, canapes, barbecue suppers, picnic food, midnight repasts, and, of course, drinks - before-dinner drinks, drinks with dinner, after-dinner drinks, and drinks having nothing to do with meals - are ideal for men with kitchen no-how! When a crowd descends upon you for an evening of bridge or poker, or just for conviviality at your expense, do you know what to serve? Or on a long, hot summer's afternoon, what to quaff? Or on a bleak, black winter's day, what to snift? Read on. - from the book
