There may be a thousand ways for you to gear up for the coming season 5 for Mad Men (an AMC cable network show). Re-watched the previous 4 seasons, drool over the new cast photos, etc, etc. But fans of Don Draper can also drool over this suave novel Mad Men Cookbook. The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook: Inside the Kitchens, Bars, and Restaurants of Mad Men carries over 70 recipes from the kitchens, bars and restaurants seen on the show; Something that will satisfy any hungry shark.
“Ever wish you could mix an Old Fashioned just the way Don Draper likes it? Or prepare Oysters Rockefeller and a martini the way they did fifty years ago at one of Roger Sterling’s favorite haunts, The Grand Central Oyster Bar? Ever wonder how Joan Harris manages to prepare a perfect crown roast in her tiny apartment kitchen? Or about the connection between Jackie Kennedy’s 1962 White House tour and Betty Draper’s Valentine’s Day room service order?
The book boasts color photo inserts of 16 dishes, as well as black and white potos of other bars, restaurants, and food advertisements from the 1960s. Along with the recipes and photos comes both historical and cultural context for the food and drink featured in the show”
Now you can also pound back a few Whiskey Sours, make a The Pierre Hotel Irish Coffee, Jackie Kennedy’s Avocado and Crabmeat Mimosa or even a Kitty’s Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
