Legendary author and journalist Ernest Hemingway was known for his insatiable appetite for life including good food and drink.

So we love that Craig Boreth celebrates Hemingway in The Hemingway Cookbook (Chicago Review Press), a collection of 125+ recipes from Hemingway’s life and art. The dishes include Dorado Fillet in Damn Good Sauce; Woodcock Flambé in Armagnac; Campfire Apple Pie, and Fillet of Lion.

Boreth has recreated the meals that enriched Hemingway’s literature, collecting recipes from former Hemingway haunts, period cookbooks, and other sources. He has included family photos; dining passages from stories (“A Moveable Feast”, “The Old Man and the Sea” and “A Farewell to Arms”); his short stories; personal correspondence; and a contribution from his last wife, Mary.
