Carpe Kitchen! The door of the Peter Pauper vault has swung open to release our legendary 1950s cookbooks…for your e-reader!
Like nights on the town and cozy get-togethers, these 1950s dishes blossom beautifully with the introduction of wine. From the era of the three-martini lunch comes the splash-of-wine steak, suffused with the warm richness of Pinot. Souse a prime cut of veal delectably as you cook Saltimbocca Florentine. Get Dundee Pea Soup rolling with a dash or three of sherry, and bring out the smoky savor of a Long Island Duckling with a pour of red. Serve Pears in Wine, clove-spiced and pink with port, to conclude a convivial meal. Merry illustrations and bon vivant verses top up this rosy ode to the tipsy kitchen!
A bird in the pot;
Wine in the bottle,
Oh, happy my lot!
