In its heyday, The Stork Club was the "place to be seen" among New York's glitterati. Gossip columnist Walter Winchell held the corner table, recording the comings and goings of the brightest stars of stage and screen--including Lauren Bacall, Bette Davis, and Ralph Bellamy--along with shining literary lions--from Ernest Hemingway to Dashiell Hamett and Anita Loos--to politicians and bigwigs--including regulars like J. Edgar Hoover. And the Club's host--Sherman Billingsley--became famous for keeping the fun going to the early hours of the morning. The Stork Club Cookbook and Bar Book brings back these two classic works along with Shermane Billingsley's own "How to Throw a Stork Club Party" and her memories of her father's nightclub. Long unavailable in print, and never gathered together before, the entire suite of classic works is introduced with a brief history of the Stork Club by Broadway historian Ken Bloom. You'll be able to follow in the culinary footsteps of major stars while you enjoy Quail la Jane Russell and Eggs Eva Gabor that you can whip up in your own kitchen. You'll tipple along with your favorite bar-hoppers, enjoying drinks like Nelson Eddy's Alexander the Great and Ralph Bellamy's Scotch Sour right in your own living room.
