Trader Vic’s Helluva Man’s Cookbook, Victor Jules Bergeron, 1976: First edition, first printing copy of Trader Vic’s seventh cookbook. Hard cover with dust jacket, both in as-if-new condition. Clever illustrations by Jane Walworth. Book published by Doubleday & Company, Inc., Garden City, New York, in 1976.
As are all of the Trader Vic cookbooks, actually written by Victor Jules Bergeron, the recipes are written in a chatty, witty, conversational style, with lots of asides and little anecdotes from Bergeron’s past and from his years as a restaurateur. The recipes are clear and lean toward the spicy side of life. He says this is a man’s cookbook, but the recipes all seem gender-neutral to me. Chapters on meat (of course,) appetizers, soups, fish, poultry, game, barbecue, eggs, vegetables, salads, crepes, sweets, and a chapter on booze.
Again, both book and dust jacket in as-if-new condition. First edition, first printing. Great gift!
