Synopsis

If you've ever fantasized about feasting on Frank Sinatra's Barbecued Lamb, lunching on Lucille Ball's "Chinese-y Thing," diving ever-so-neatly into Joan Crawford's Poached Salmon, or wrapping your lips around Rock Hudson's cannoli - and really, who hasn't? - hold on to your oven mitts!



In The Dead Celebrity Cookbook: A Resurrection of Recipes by 150 Stars of Stage and Screen, Frank DeCaro--the flamboyantly funny Sirius XM radio personality best known for his six-and-a-half-year stint as the movie critic on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart--collects hundreds of recipes passed on from legendary stars of stage and screen, proving that before there were celebrity chefs, there were celebrities who fancied themselves chefs.



Their all-but-forgotten recipes--rescued from out-of-print cookbooks, musty biographies, vintage magazines, and dusty pamphlets--suggest a style of home entertaining ripe for reexamination if not revival, while reminding intrepid gourmands that, for better or worse, Hollywood doesn't make celebrities (or cooks) like it used to.

Frank DeCaro (New York, NY) is heard each weekday morning on his own live national call-in program, "The Frank DeCaro Show," on Sirius XM Satellite Radio, which now boasts more than 25 million subscribers. His guests have run the gamut from Ernest Borgnine to Tom Ford--on one three-hour show!--and his following across North America is as loyal as it is diverse. An accomplished home cook and an even better eater, DeCaro writes the "Now Remember" column for CBS Watch magazine. Previously, he wrote the "Style Over Substance" column for The New York Times. A graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, he has written for myriad publications including The New York Times Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, Newsweek, Vogue and TV Guide. Both a writer and a performer, DeCaro co-created the 2010 YouTube sensation "Betty White Lines," a rap tribute to the Golden Girls star which was featured on the Today show, Showbiz Tonight, and dozens of blogs, and got more than 100,000 hits in its first week online. In addition, the award-winning DeCaro is the author of the groundbreaking A Boy Named Phyllis: A Suburban Memoir, which Vanity Fair called "hilarious" and The Advocate credited as opening the door for David Sedaris and "the gay American humorist as everyman." His follow-up work, a coffee table biography called Unmistakably Mackie: The Fashion and Fantasy of Bob Mackie, earned a B+ in Entertainment Weekly.
