The Joan Crawford Cookbook

A new kitchen-friendly version of Cooking With Joan Crawford is now available.

With extra colour portraits of Joan and a handful of newly discovered recipes, it’s a compact and bijou version of the coffee table version available exclusively from Blurb.

Here is a link to the book on Amazon – be sure to switch to your own country for correct pricing if you are not in the UK.

The coffee table version is still available via Blurb but only for a limited time.

As there are no food photos in the book (only pictures of the lovely Joan) here are links to my blogposts for recipes included in the cookbook (click on the link for pix).
