Bake Some Alaska: There’s a Mad Men Cookbook


Set aside the $1.99 you were going to spend on that Mad Men cocktail app and save it for the cookbook. News of the deal comes from the subscribers’ section of Publishers Marketplace: “Judy Gelman and Peter Zheutlin’s THE UNOFFICIAL MAD MEN COOKBOOK, a guide to the food and drink mentioned in the show from Sterling Cooper power lunches to Betty’s Around the World Dinner; also offering suggestions for Mad Men-themed parties and entertaining with style, with every detail true to the period and themes of the show, [has been sold] to Leah Wilson at BenBella Books, for publication in Winter 2112.” If it sounds like something you’d buy, check out Epicurious’s “Mad Men Menu and Party Plan,” Eatocracy’s “Mad Men Food Spotting” column, and our own ruminations about the food of Mad Men. Oh, and here’s a recipe for Betty Draper’s rumaki!
