"21 Cookbook" by Michael Lomonaco$39.00
Although '21' has been immortalized on film, in photographs, drawings, and print, there has never before been a '21' cookbook. Happily, that oversight was rectified with this 1995 First Edition. Reading the 21 Cookbook is to partake of a feast nearly as opulent as a visit to '21' itself.
This book conjures up nostalgic images of glamorous days gone by, but Chef Lomonaco's up-to-date recipes return it firmly to the present. More than a cookbook, it's really a scrapbook/history of the high-society restaurant that began as a speakeasy. There are photographs of famous patrons, from presidents to movie stars, writers, and tycoons; cartoons and drawings by New Yorker contributors and other well-known artists; and newspaper clippings, movie stills, and more memorabilia. The recipes include the traditional dishes for which "21" is known, but anyone who thinks the restaurant still serves nothing but its signature hamburgers and chicken hash will be pleasantly surprised by Lomonaco's contemporary creations. The text includes lots of detailed information on food, techniques, and wine.
