Mendelsohn writes, “The opportunity of securing Famous Recipes of Famous People, this most unusual of cook books, is one of many attractions for the visitors at The Food and Beverage Fair and Household Exposition. It has been contributed to by famous chefs and maitres, by stage folk and screen stars, by newspaper men, columnists, in fact by glamorous personalities in every walk of life.”
Contributors include Henry Fonda (Onion Rings), Mary Pickford (Creamed Finnan Haddie), Jascha Heifetz Fried herring with onions) and Jack Dempsey (Old fashioned Irish lamb stew). This is a very scarce cook book with only 4 copies recorded on OCLC.
