Contributing celebrities -- from Lady Margaret Thatcher to Academy Award-winning actor Gregory Peck -- share their favorite culinary creations and personal anecdotes to make Feast for Life at once original and engaging, yet practical in the kitchen. A forward by Elizabeth Taylor is followed by recipes ranging from appetizers to desserts, featuring tantalizing dishes such as Giorgio Armani's Tortelli alla Piacentina and Roger Verge's Salad of Scallops with Orange Butter and even a few with Peanut Butter. Each dish is distinctive in style, yet achievable -- tested in the kitchens of culinary graduate Gretchen Sandin Jordan and home cook Linda Provus Barlett.
These delightful recipes and their notable donors are creatively captured through the innovative photography and layout. The collaboration makes Feast for Life unique its design as well as enticing to the palate.
More than just a cookbook, Feast for Life is at once a winning effort in the fight against AIDS, and an entertaining and poignant portrait of our time.
