Celebrating the Famous Places Where Hollywood Ate, Drank, and Played
By George Geary
DO YOU EVER WISH YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME to experience the glitz and glamour of old Hollywood? Now you can, with best-selling cookbook author George Geary in his new book L.A.’s Legendary Restaurants. This book is more than just your average cookbook; L.A.’s Legendary Restaurants has a richly illustrated narrative filled with vintage photographs and menus of Los Angeles’ landmark eateries.
Each page takes you on a journey through Hollywood’s Golden Age, one moment you are splitting an ice cream with Shirley Temple at Pig ‘n Whistle and the next you are sitting in the same booth as Walt Disney at the Tam O’ Shanter. This book is filled with over 100 of famous celebrities’ favorite recipes such as the popular Cobb Salad from The Brown Derby
and even teaches you how to make a “hangover cure” known as The Zombie from Don the Beachcomber.
Even though most of these locations are a thing of the past, L.A.’s Legendary Restaurants will always let us remember how old Hollywood ate, drank, and played.
