In 1959, advertising illustrator and artist, Andy Warhol, got together with socialite Suzie Frankfurt to produce a limited edition cookbook for New York's beau monde. They called it Wild Raspberries (Ingmar Bergman's Wild Raspberries had just been released) - and it's hands down the funniest, campest, most fanciful cookbook ever produced. Nineteen vintage Warhol illustrations accompany the hilarious recipes - A&P Surprise, Gefilte of Fighting Fish, Seared Roebuck, Baked Hawaii, Roast Igyuana Andalusian among others - that were conceived by Frankfurt and hand-lettered, spelling mistakes and all, by Mrs. Warhol, Andy's mum. This beautiful facsimile edition brings this classic book back to life for a new generation. From Omelet Greta Garbo (made without eggs and designed to be eaten alone in a candlelit room) to Piglet a la Trader Vic's (which instructs us to send a chauffeur to the Plaza Hotel's famous restaurant and order a suckling pig to go), Wild Raspberries is pure delight.
