I can’t stop turning the pages of this beautiful book by the fascinating Merle Armitage.  It’s filled with so many interesting recipes (including about a dozen ways to cook kidneys).  Some are clearly absurd, but I find a lot of them very enticing.

Leafing through the recipes by famous folk, I was very taken by these from Aline Bernstein (the costume designer).  Never seen anything quite like them.

    Aline Bernstein is a major part of the wonderful new motion picture GENIUS about Maxwell Perkins, Thomas Wolfe, Ernest Hemingway & F Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald .. no recipes or special meals that I recall in the movie but it’s brilliant none the less.

    I am so intrigued by the hamburger recipe. I might have to try it.
    Thank you, Ruth, for entertaining all of us so beautifully!
