Additional Details

Description: At the age of six Jean Dalrymple won a baking contest and became famous in her hometown, Morristown, New Jersey. She grew up to become world renowned for her brilliant work in the performing arts -- as actress, writer, manager, publicist, director, and producer, in Europe and Latin America as well as on Broadway. 

In this engaging volume, Miss Dalrymple reveals the secrets of her outstanding culinary achievements and gives us glimpses into backstage life and its people, including her friends Jose Iturbi, Peggy Wood, Jessie Royce Landis, Richard Burton, Frederick Loewe and George Bernard Shaw. 

Here, along with practical advice for preparing a perfect omelet, turning out a truly light souffle, and concocting low-calorie menus to delight the most sophisticated palate (no one is more weight- conscious than a member of the theater set) is a dazzling array of exotic international delicacies -- Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian, Moorish, Lebanese, Arabian, Mexican, Spanish, French, Italian, Jewish, German, and English. 

Here, too, are the personal recipes of many friends: Mrs. Syngman Rhee's Chicken with Nut Sauce and Curried Liver; Charlotte Royale, Duxelles, and Lobster American from Henry Haller, chief White House chef; General J.F.R. Seitz's Brandy Pie and Bourbon Soup; and more. 

There is something here for everyone: Protein Pizza and refreshing Lime Sherbet for the weight watcher; Lentil Curry, Mushroom Casserole, and Eggplant Parmigiana for the vegetarian; Health Muffins Pinafore for the organic-food minded; gourmet delicacies such as Grilled Breast of Goose (Richard Burton's favorite); authentic French Bouillabaisse, Crepes Suzettes, and Cherries Jubilee; and cool, sparkling Sangria. In addition, Miss Dalrymple has delightful new recipes for universal old favorites -- Pot Roast, Potato Pancakes, Lobster Newburg, Blueberry Muffins, Molasses Cake, Quiche Lorraine, and countless others. 

From intimate luncheons in the country to after-theater suppers, from Sunday buffet brunches to gala full-course dinners, Jean Dalrymple's Pinafore Farm Cookbook makes entertaining (and eating) easy, fun, and deliciously festive every time.
