      ``Writing'' is probably a stretch. He did do the first national restaurant guides, though.

        I have had a copy of Duncan Hines' Adventures in Good Eating in my food books for years, simply for the novelty of it. With a 1938 copyright, there aren't many of the places listed that are still in business.

            I also have a copy, and there are several places in each city I've lived in that are still extant (and more that were, but closed in my lifetime).
