Synopsis: The author shares French- and American-style recipes as well as memories of her experiences in France with Gertrude Stein

Review: "It will be the fiercest Francophobe who can read Alice's recipes and not hanker for a taste, the dullest cook who will not want to get to the kitchen and try them out."--Time

"A cookbook that is delightful by way of its fine food has been made doubly pleasurable by the addition of shrewd worldly comment, by reminiscences, personalities, anecdotes, by the strong characters of the Misses Stein and Toklas."--New York Herald Tribune

"Alice was one of the really great cooks of all time.... The secret of her talent was great pains and a remarkable palate."--James Beard

"A book of character, fine food, and tasty human observation."--The New Yorker
