Party Like a Mad Man!

book-coverHey kittens! I have some very exciting news–I am participating in a virtual party on April 5th in honor of the last 7 episodes of Mad Men. So you can get in the spirit as well, I am giving away a copy of The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook by Judy Gilman and Peter Zheutlin!

Dine Like Draper and Drink Like Sterling with More Than 70 Recipes from the Kitchens, Bars, and Restaurants Seen on Mad Men!

Ever wish you could mix an Old Fashioned cocktail just the way Don Draper likes it? Or prepare Oysters Rockefeller and a martini the way they did fifty years ago at one of Roger Sterling’s favorite haunts, The Grand Central Oyster Bar? Ever wonder how Joan Harris manages to prepare a perfect crown roast in her tiny apartment kitchen? Or about the connection between Jackie Kennedy’s 1962 White House tour and Betty Draper’s Valentine’s Day room service order?

The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook: Inside the Kitchens, Bars, and Restaurants of Mad Men serves up more than 70 recipes to satisfy a Mad Men appetite! From the tables of Manhattan’s most legendary restaurants and bars to the Drapers’ Around the World dinner, The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook is your entrée to the culinary world of Man Men-era New York. Packed with period detail, The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbookprovides invaluable historical and cultural context for the food and drink featured in Mad Men, tips on throwing a successful ’60s cocktail party, and even a guide to favored Mad Men hangouts.

Whether you’re planning a Mad Men party or just can’t get enough of the show itself, this is your essential resource, a guide to all foods and drinks Mad Men.

I think we all know how much I like this cookbook. It’s appeared so many times on the blog. I’ve made the Canadian Club Punch, Rumaki and Gimlet, and assorted cocktails and canapes (be sure not to miss Don’s Old Fashioned).  I think it’s a must-own for fans of Mad Men, retro recipes, or food history.

    I will be wearing a girdle, retro dress, high heels and pearls whilst enjoying my martini. Can’t wait. And yes, I really will be wearing a girdle.

    I agree, foundation garments are key. One step closer to looking like Betty!
