F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Taste of France: Recipes Inspired by the Cafes and Bars of Fitzgerald's Paris and the Riviera in the 1920s by Carol Hilker
Carol Hilker has collected over 60 recipes inspired by the decadent food and drink enjoyed by F. Scott Fitzgerald and his fellow expatriates. From a cafe on boulevard Montparnasse for breakfast on Croque Monsieur accompanied by a Bloody Mary, to lunch on caviar sandwiches and champagne, idle away the hours on the sun-soaked French coast with an al fresco supper of Shrimp Cocktail, Steak Frites, and Riviera Fruit Salad, or throw a party to rival Gatsby’s most glamorous affair and serve Harlequin Salad and Gin Rickeys. With features exploring the flight from Prohibition in the USA , the expat American community to which Fitzgerald was introduced by Ernest Hemingway, and chefs de Paris, F. Scott Fitzgerald's Taste of France is a gourmet, historical, and cultural journey you won’t want to miss.
