NUDES & FOODS—GORMAN GOES COURMET

Compiled and Edited by Virginia Dooley

Publisher: Northland Press, Flagstaff, 1981

Spiral bound, first edition, 1981. 

81 pages, illustrated with 22 male and female nude paintings by Gorman and 92 food receipts.

 

Editor’s Foreword by Virginia Dooley

“Any attempt at organizing a cookbook by R. C. Gorman into neat little categories (soup, salad, entrée, etc.) is as impossible as trying to organize Gorman himself.  We shall, therefore, proceed with abandon and in no particular order.  That’s what makes creating this book as much fun as preparing for one of his extended tours.  The procedure is about the same.”

 

A Sample of a Receipt Entry

Chinese New Year’s Dinner

My husband, Max, and I met R. C. at an afternoon prayer meeting.  We were all sitting around a table at a local bistro praying for the attention of a waitress.  The conversation was animated and R. C.’s eyes were sparkling.  He has the happiest eyes!

Char Boie-Graebner

Editor’s Note:  It’s a ten-year tradition that Char gathers up Gorman and friends for a Chinese New Year’s dinner.  The most infamous of these celebrations included twenty-one courses and lasted over six hours.  Gorman’s derrière gave out.  But he kept right on eating.

(Following this introduction was the receipts for Fragrant Pork, Lotus Roots, and Chinese Cabbage)

 

Condition: very good condition. This copy never found its way to the kitchen, only to a bookshelf.

Provenance: from the library of Alexander E. Anthony, Jr.
