Yes, there is one. It’s saturday, I confess I was out late last night watching Lorraine Bowen on stage in London. I wanted a lie in and I was risen from my grave (my name for 12 tog duvet) to the postman wanting a signature for a delivery. Gurrr.
Now, cookbooks are somthing I know lots about. I’ve written 9 and won a Gourmand World Cookbook Award for one. I’ve been lucky enough to see the world with my work. But this one, well. It’s different. It’s all about celebrity corpse cooking.
My good friends at the Lisa Ekus Partnership in the USA thought it would be nice for me to receive this gift. Lisa currently has a catchphrase that I’m loving and she said to me to “Put some glam into your holiday ham”. Lisa, I will ‘Britify’ this comment as we do Christmas and not the holiday season as Americans call it. I think my translation will be “Gay up the gammon”.
Back to matters in hand. This book is mad! In a good way. I have laughed so much. Called The Dead Celebrity cookbook It’s a bunch of dead Hollywood Celebs recipes. Subtitled “Celebrity recipes and Hollywood memories from six feet under the mistletoe”. Fabulous!
I must dash. Busy day of cooking in James Mansions today. My QVC Celebrity friend Patrick Hoy is coming for dinner. I assure you, He’s quacking alive!
Frank DeCaro’s The Dead Celebrity Cookbook is for you!!!
