About the Author
Alice B. Toklas was Gertrude Stein's "secretary-companion." For many years they lived together in France, Toklas cooking while Stein was writing. She is memorialized in Stein's most famous book, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas.
"A cookbook that is delightful by way of its fine food has been made doubly pleasurable by the addition of shrewd worldly comment, by reminiscences, personalities, anecdotes, by the strong characters of the Misses Stein and Toklas."--New York Herald Tribune
"Alice was one of the really great cooks of all time.... The secret of her talent was great pains and a remarkable palate."--James Beard
"A book of character, fine food, and tasty human observation."--The New Yorker
