The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook

Inside the Kitchens, Bars, and Restaurants of Mad Men
. 978-1-93666-141-1. Cooking
COPY ISBN
Part cookbook, part annotated episode guide, this entertaining read has everything the die-hard Mad Men fan needs to host a fantastic cocktail party. In chapters covering cocktails, appetizers, salads, main dishes, and desserts, retro recipes are introduced by a scene from the show and put in historical context. Most recipes come from famous Manhattan bars and restaurants (e.g., Keen's Caesar Salad) or period cookbooks and periodicals (e.g., Date Nut Bread, sourced from the 1960 newspaper column "Heloise's Kitchen Hints"). Given the book's historical emphasis, some dishes will please modern palates more than others.
