Description: The Hemingway Cookbook takes readers on a unique, sumptuous journey to the countries, adventures, and foods that shaped Ernest Hemingway's life. With the eyes, ears, and palate of an artist, he took these experiences and wove them into his fiction.
From his early years in Oak Park, Illinois, through the tragedies of Italy, his emergence as a writer of note in France, the grand celebrations in Spain, the years of fishing in Key West and Cuba, and hunting in Africa and Idaho, this book presents the foods and drinks that enliven his writing and intermingles them with history, literature, and the charismatic bravado of one of the twentieth century's great characters.
Featuring more than 125 recipes from Hemingway's haunts, personal family recipes, and friends, the development of his exquisite palate can be traced from his mother's English Tea Cakes and father's Campfire Apple Pie, to his wife Mary's Sweet-Sour Sauce, to his first mate Gregorio's Dorado Fillet in Damn Good Sauce, to his own potent Bloody Marys.
More than fifty intimate photographs complete this portrait of Papa's life.
