The long-forgotten STORK CLUB COOKBOOK, originally published privately in 1949 by Sherman Billingsley, commemorates the 20th anniversary of the founding of New Yorks legendary Stork Club, located at 3 East 53rd Street, just east of Fifth Avenue. A favorite Billingsley tactic was to ply his famous guests with presents. Besides neckties for the men and perfume for the ladies, this book, published on the heels of the successful STORK CLUB BAR BOOK by Lucius Beebe, was produced in a limited printing and gifted to regulars, as stated, friends and discriminating patrons of the club.

It includes recipes from chef Gustave Reynaud for 100 dishes in categories of Potages, Salades, Entrees, Sauces, Potatoes and Vegetables, Egg Dishes, Chinese Specialties, and Desserts. Notable entries include Walter Winchell Burger, Poached Kennebec Salmon Steak a la Morton Downey, Omelette Steve Hannagan, Coconut Snowball, and Joan Fontaines Bananas with Rum.

Also included are 24 cocktails by head barman Nathaniel Cook, i.e. John Garfields Rob Roy, Ann Sheridan Cocktail, Eddie Whittmers Blessed Event, and, of course, the gin-based Stork Club Cocktail. This book is reproduced from a lost copy of the original STORK CLUB COOKBOOK, personally inscribed by Mr. Billingsley himself. The book reflects the style, flavor and, unfortunately, the mild imperfections of the printing processes of that era. (6 x 9-inch format- 136 pages)
