About the book:

If you peruse the table of contents of Aromas and Flavors of Past and Present, you'll find such delectable dishes as Quo Vadis Cake, Perfumed Goose, Ribbons of Sarah Bernhardt, and Artichokes in the Greek Manner. This classic cookbook gathers more than 200 recipes that Alice B. Toklas, Gertrude Stein's companion, put to use in thrilling and entertaining the artists, glitterati, and literati of 1920s Paris. At times her dining guests included world-renowned notables Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Sherwood Anderson, and Matisse. This edition of the cookbook leaves both the recipes and Toklas's comments unchanged. Editor Poppy Cannon of House Beautiful magazine has added brief remarks in italics that help contemporary understanding of traditional cooking, as well as an introduction to the book that relates the history of the recipes' collector and the collection.
