      1. re: Antilope

        Wow! That is a really exhaustive list. Thanks for the effort in compiling it. But I'm a bit surprised to see no entries from Vincent Price who was a master home cook and authored a rather elaborate cookbook. Frank Sinatra and Dinah Shore were also known to be avid cooks. And up to now, I wasn't aware of any 30-minute recipes from Julia Child.

        1. re: Sam D

          I am working on more lists. This is only 1965 through 1968. The articles continue through about 1984.

      2. Interesting, but you have to wonder how many of these were recipes the celebrities themselves, or even their families, actually ever made. Celebrity print interviews sometimes included recipes as a way of making the subject seem down-to-earth. The wives of Presidential candidates are obliged to share their favorite cookie recipes. I have my doubts that many of these women have baked, much less developed, those recipes.

          <sigh>

          I just finished looking at an old issue of Bon Appetit, from which I remember making Suzanne Somers' red raspberry souffle back in July 1978. According to the article, she did all her own cooking, never relying on caterers.

          1. Thanks so much, Antilope, what fun! Interesting on more than one level.

            I have a nice recipe for zucchini pancakes from Holly Hunter (or is it Helen Hunt?) I'll find it and post.
