Feeding the Lions, 1942: Feeding the Lions: An Algonquin Cookbook is a charming cookbook, written by Frank Case and illustrated by O. Soglow, from the heyday of the Algonquin Hotel in New York City, when the literary lions, the theatrical lions, the lions of the culinary world, and of other worlds all congregated at the Algonquin Hotel. I’m writing this in mid-November when we’re all thinking about holiday menus. Here are some seasonally appropriate recipes from Feeding the Lions: Turkey Tetrazzini (for all those meals AFTER the holiday,) Celery Stuffing, and Frozen Eggnog (for those of you who live in warmer climates, if you want a cold dessert for Christmas.)
