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”
