Chasen's Where Hollywood Dined Recipes and Memories by Betty Goodwin
Nostalgia and cookbook collectors get ready: We may never be able to toast Frank Sinatra with a Flame of Love martini, join Jimmy and Gloria Stewart over calf's liver and onions, or share a steaming bowl of Boiled Beef Belmont with the President and Mrs. Reagan on Tuesday nights. But we can come close. CHASEN'S has every great recipe that kept the stars coming back for more, plus its fascinating text stirs delivers the dish on the restaurant and its famous fans. Recipes include the world famous Chasen's Chili that Elizabeth Taylor had air-freighted to the Cleopatra set in Italy, the Chicken Pot Pie served to Queen Elizabeth, the Shirley Temple cocktail that Chasen's bartender invented for the curly-topped star, and a host of other favorites including Deviled Beef Bones, Banana Shortcake, Sole Hitchcock, Coupe Snowball, and the dish President Reagan always ordered, Boiled Beef Belmont.
