More Menu Madness

November 20, 2015



From my collection of old menus.  I’m guessing this is from the thirties, before Spenger’s moved from Benicia to Berkeley, when you could still get a shrimp cocktail for thirty-five cents.

    Ms. Reichl,
    I am a single dad of two teenage kids who have grown up with a preference for their father’s cooking. In reality I am a hack cook who tries and who buys and looks at hundreds of cookbooks. Your “My Kitchen Year” is the best cookbook I have ever encountered and it is the only one I have ever read from start to almost finished. I will finish it. It is biblical.

    I have recommended it to all of my cookie/cookish friends.

    Thank you and all best wishes.

    Paul Robson
