Favorite Recipes of Famous Men

We are suckers for collections of recipes by "famous" folk.  So naturally, Favorite Recipes of Famous Men a 1949 cookbook collection by Roy Ald is a great one.  Let's be honest, there are very few recipes in famous collections that will have you says, "I'm going to go right out and make that dish!"  But these types of books are great fun.

First, it is always fun to see who is considered "famous" at different time.  In Favorite Recipes of Famous Men the introduction is written by Eddie Cantor. The men in this book are mostly actors with a smattering of singers.  The is Jimmie Durante, Red Skelton, Edward g. Robinson, Gene Autry, Cary Grant and more.

There are the ever appetising dishes like Meat a la Tyrone Power. Rudy Vallee's Scrambled Eggs Valle Style.  Spaghetti Fairbanks,by--you guessed it-- Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. There famous guys do love to name their dishes after them...or their mothers.

As one might imagine, there are a lot of meat and potato s, a dessert or two and some real interesting, if odd dishes.  This zippy dish from the debonair Rex Harrison is one of our favorites...

Clam Juice Stiffener

3 cups clam broth
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup catsup
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons horseradish, freshly grated
Salt to taste

Combine all ingredients.

Ah those pesky famous guys...

  1. The Problem With The World’s Fastest-Growing Diet...

    Ever heard of the “Paleo Diet”?

    Whether you have or not, what you probably DON’T realize is that
    it’s the fastest growing “diet” in the world right now. From celebrities,
    chefs, elite athletes... even fitness experts--everyone is eager to try
    it or adopt it.

    And for good reason! Because no other diet or eating plan provides
    so many benefits so fast:

    - Increased Energy
    - Clearer Skin
    - Lean, Muscular Body
    - Enhanced Libido
    - Greater Mental Clarity
    - All Day Stamina
    - Better Workouts
    - And more

    The list goes on and on. Talk to anyone who’s actually eaten Paleo for
    even a full month and chances are, they’ll rave about the changes they
    started seeing in their body.

    Now, the problem…

    You see, by far the biggest complaint we hear from many who try out
    the Paleo lifestyle is 'boring' or that it's too hard.

    Often, people learn the core principles, experience results... but then
    get stuck eating bland meals of the same foods over and over again.
