Fashions in Food in Beverly Hills(1931, signed)
Beverly Hills Women's Club
Beverly Hills, 1931
Please see the entry for the 1929 edition of this cookbook for more information on the Beverly Hills Women's Club
This edition - which I found at Vajra Books in Inglewood (one of my most favorite LA bookstores, now closed) - is signed by several famous stars of the era, including Gary Cooper, Maurice Chevalier, and Carol Lumbard.
I've written elsewhere in this archive about "Hollywood" as a place both physical and imagined, but one thing that makes LA's community cookbooks unique is the ways in which a grandmother's meatballs can share a page with cookie recipe from a famous film star, and both are given equal reverence.
