The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book, first published in 1954, is one of the bestselling cookbooks of all time. Alice B. Toklas, writer Gertrude Stein's life partner, wrote the book to make up for her unwillingness at the time to write her memoirs, in deference to Stein's 1933 book, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. This work is as much of an autobiography as it is a cookbook, in that it contains as many personal recollections as it does recipes. Toklas Cookbook book. This book always reminds me of one of my (late) godmothers who would pick up her glass of pre-dinner sherry and start reminiscing how she had ‘discovered’ the young and (then) unknown Daniel Day Lewis. In Paris, in 1908, after moving in with Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas began to develop a knowledgeable passion for the fine cooking of France. This scintillating literary memoir of a recipe book is one result of that. That, in a nutshell, is to me the prime delight of this book.

Mr. Isengart developed his passion for cooking through sweets, so there is a virtual disco of orange sherbet, rote grütze (German red berry compote) and éclairs. Also, for those with a taste for edibles, we find a reimagined recipe for Ms. Toklas’s famed hashish fudge, the first time pot brownies appeared in a popular cookbook.
