OP: The Seducer's Cookbook
Shipping calculated at checkout
For an ardent fan or the completist collector, this early book by the food authority and former New York Times restaurant critic is a nice find. Published in 1963, and about as culturally distant from her classic From My Mother’s Kitchen as is possible, The Seducer’s Cookbook offers, light-heartedly, “helpful and hilarious hints for 20 situations into which men may lure women, and vice versa.”
The humor does creak a little. Not surprisingly, the accompanying cartoons and the devilled eggs with pâté stuffing or the toasted almond soufflé with foamy brandy sauce evoke a time long, long ago.Ours is a first printing in Very Good condition. The book block is gently shelfworn but clean inside. The jacket is price clipped and showing some closed tears and chipping about the edges. Most enjoyable to those with a wry sense of humor.
