The holidays are here and what better way to celebrate than with dead celebrities! Frank DeCaro’s follow-up to last year’s Dead Celebrity Cookbook boasts a holiday theme and urges cooks to “put some glam in your holiday ham.” Christmas in Tinseltownis a fun and delicious new way to celebrate the holidays with food.
Christmas in Tinseltown features Peggy Lee’s Holiday Halibut Casserole, Burl Ives’s Stuffed Leg of Goat Hawaiian, Lucille Ball’s Brazil Nut Stuffing, Nat “King” Cole’s Baked Ham Loaf, Dick Clark’s Spicy Turkey Meatloaf, Rosemary Clooney’s Viennese Goulash and Bing Crosby’s Sugar Cookies, to name a few. Each recipe pays homage to the best in Christmas movies, songs and pop culture. Chapters titled “It’s a Wonderful Lunch,” “Miracle Whip on 34th Street” and “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas Cookie” can force even the worst bah-humbugging Scrooge into the holiday spirit.
Each recipe is paired with a hilarious and witty introduction to the star involved as well as background information on the celebrity’s history and contribution to the world of entertainment. Fun facts about movie production and celebrity gossip are also included, to satisfy the curiosity of any movie buff.
