COOKING FOR A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN: The TASTES and TALES of a Wonderful Life by Larry Levine
They were singers and secretaries, classmates and teachers, actresses and attorneys, mothers, daughters, granddaughters, friends, lovers, and mentors. They were strong, intelligent, independent, and witty. Together and separately, they wove a tapestry of smiles and tears and inspired the warm, funny, tender, and sweet stories that fill the pages of Cooking for a Beautiful Woman – part memoir, part cookbook.
