Celebrity Cookbook 1981

a caricature of Shelley

Shelley was one of the celebrities featured in Johna Blinn's Celebrity Cookbook in 1981. A former food editor for Look magazine, Johna Blinn wrote a syndicated column called Celebrity Cookbook and the book was compilation of the recipes featured in her column - all by celebrities, of course. Aside from Shelley, the almost 500-page book featured hundreds of other stars - from George Burns to Andy Warhol. And instead of pictures, caricatures of the stars were included in the book, just like it was in the column. If you can find this book, get it. It's a classic and is one of the best celebrity cookbook out there.
