Restaurant kitchens have long been dominated by men, but, as of late, there has been an explosion of interest in the many women chefs who are revolutionizing the culinary game.

And, alongside that interest, an accompanying appetite for smart, well-crafted culinary memoirs by female trailblazers in food.

Nearly 70 years earlier, there was Alice.

When Alice B. Toklas was asked to write a memoir, she initially refused. Instead, she wrote The Alice B.

Toklas Cook Book
, a sharply written, deliciously rich cookbook memorializing meals and recipes shared by Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Wilder, Matisse, and Picassoand of course by Alice and Gertrude themselves.

While The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklaspenned by Gertrude Steinadds vivid detail to Alices life, this cookbook paints a richer, more joyous depiction: a celebration of a lifetime in pursuit of culinary delights.

In this cookbook, Alice supplies recipes inspired by her travels, accompanied by amusing tales of her and Gertrudes lives together. In Murder in the Kitchen, Alice describes the first carp she killed, after which she immediately lit up a cigarette and waited for the police to come and haul her away; in Dishes for Artists, she describes her hunt for the perfect recipe to fit Picassos peculiar diet; and, of course, in Recipes from Friends, she provides the recipe for Haschich Fudge, which she notes may often be accompanied by ecstatic reveries and extensions of ones personality on several simultaneous planes.

With an updated look and feel, and a heartwarming introduction from Gourmets famed Editor-in-Chief Ruth Reichl, this much-loved, culinary classic is sure to resonate with food lovers and literary folk alike.
