    1. I never read a cookbook cover to cover. My rationale with cookbooks is to flip through – pictures? Good. Lots of pictures? Great. A variety of recipes? Very good. Lots of caviar and truffles and other ingredients I couldn't bring myself to buy even if I could afford them? No thanks. And then if I buy the book it will go on a shelf until I need a recipe from it; if I agree to review a book (as I did with this from Netgalley) I will page through it to form an intelligent opinion of the layout an [...]

    2. This was insightful and interesting. More of a historical piece than a cookbook. I have not seen Mad Men but I do love the time period and the classy elegance of it. The book was perfectly descriptive in this manner and one could see themselves in that role. This would be a fantastic reference if you were going to throw a party in this time period. I appreciated the research needed to find just the right recipes to portray the refinement and sophistication of the era.

    3. Fun and quick read.It's interesting that someone would watch the series again under the filter of what characters ate & drank. I mean, it was integral to the series and was noticed by myself, but these authors got very precise.As someone who is fascinated by retro recipes, famous old restaurants, and nostalgia in general, I really enjoyed this.The only criticism is that it seemed to only go through Season 4. I would love to see a complete version of this.

    4. I received a free ebook copy of this from Netgalley.First things first: I was instantly impressed with the dedication that the editors seemed to show, for this cookbook. The introduction tells us that the goal was to create it as true to the time period as possible, including digging up the older versions of recipes from restaurants seen in show. They didn't satisfy themselves with just getting the recipes, they made sure they were historically accurate. As someone who is at times disappointed b [...]

    5. The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook: Inside the Kitchens, Bars, and Restaurants of Mad Men is an unauthorized compilation of recipes for the ultimate Mad Men fan. Pulled from other cookbooks of the era, each cocktail, appetizer, salad, main course, and dessert featured has a prologue with a Mad Men reference and a bit of history.If you are looking for a fun gift for a Mad Men fanatic, this little gimmick will do the trick. I'd wrap this book up with a set of martini glasses and stir sticks and call [...]

    6. Grande livro pra quem é fã da série. Trabalho cuidadoso, envolveu muita pesquisa pra reproduzir drinks e pratos exatamente da forma que eram feitos na época, com os mesmos ingredientes e nas mesmas condições. Só senti falta de mais fotos.

    7. "Chop Suey" is a gem of a book which gives the reader a fascinating glimpse of the history, politics, and cuisine of two widely disparate countries, China, (The Middle Kingdom), and the U.S. This volume just came out in bookstores today, July 16, and I really hope it receives the consideration it deserves. American trade with the Middle Kingdom began in February 1784, when the ship, "Empress of China," captained by John Green, set sail from New York on a previously uncharted course - the only gu [...]

    8. A walk through the past with some recipes we may have forgotten. I have to say that I enjoyed the photos and some of the stories of the places that were used for reference.

    9. A bit of a strange book, to be sure, that is probably aimed at the ultra-obsessive "Mad Men" fan. A promised look inside the various kitchens, bars and restaurants that featured in a (popular?) American television series.The book describes best its raison d'être: "To ensure an authentic Mad Men experience, every recipe is introduced through a specific scene in the show. And to enhance your enjoyment of the food and drink we scoured period cookbooks and magazines for tips on throwing a successfu [...]

    10. "Dine like Draper and Drink like Sterling," reads the back cover of The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook, Inside the Kitchen, Bars and Restaurants of Mad Men, by Gelman and Zheutlin and published by SmartPop. The 70 recipes are inspired by specific Mad Men episodes and offer a culinary trip to the 1960s. Recipes were culled from vintage cookbooks and magazines and were kitchen tested. Recipes include cocktails, appetizers, salads, main courses, desert and sweets.My childhood family gatherings always [...]

    11. If you have ever watched Mad Men and are a fan – this is a great book. It has stories as well as recipes. Every time we watched this show I wanted a martini and my husband wanted an Old fashioned.We still haven’t seen the final episodes of this series, waiting on Netflicks, but that didn’t keep me from enjoying this book.There are recipes for so many good drinks: Old Fashions, martinis, Manhattans, Mimosas and more.Food too! Oysters Rockefeller, crown rib roast, turkey tetrazzini, pineappl [...]

    12. I don't generally read cookbooks cover to cover, but this one was worth it. Every period detail is given, much like in Mad Men itself. I loved learning exactly what the characters were eating in all those posh restaurants, and which posh restaurants they were, exactly. The recipes are either from those legendary establishments or, in the case of home-cooked meals, from period cookbooks. True to the era, the food is prepared as it was then: the microwave is only mentioned once. I read this book l [...]

    13. This is a fun cookbook for Mad Men fans. It ties the recipes in with different episodes of the show. Most of the dishes are from cookbooks used in the '60's so there is definitely an authenticity with the period. There are also recipes from famous New York restaurants, many of which are still in existence, as well as photos of the restaurants dining rooms. Also included are some vintage ads for products used in cooking during that time. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I wish the [...]

    14. If you're a Mad Man fan, this will be a great book for you. It provides recipes for cocktails, appetizers, main courses and desserts from the 1960s. Each recipe is tied to a particular episode or scene from the show, and the author also gives a brief history of each item. Those who are not familiar with the show probably won't gain much of the kitschy, nostalgic enjoyment from the cookbooks that fans will, but I still think it's a fun and interesting book. I will definitely try out some of the r [...]

    15. If you love the cultural history of the US in the early sixties, you'll love this book. Although each entry references an episode of the TV series mad men, you don't need to have seen them to appreciate the book. Each recipe is prefaced by the history of a cocktail, appetizer, meal or restaurant that the characters either ate, drank or referenced in an episode and gives a well-researched description, history or anecdote. The "chapters" are breezy so you can read them leisurely one at a time, or [...]

    16. I agree with another reviewer that this book would be targeted towards the Mad Man show fan. In reviewing this book, I found it to be a simple regurgitation of common recipes from that period of time. Some of which are still popular today, but easily found.What I found to be most interesting to me was the clear research that the author did on the period of time and the photos surrounding the tidbits of information. In the end though, I am reviewing a cookbook, not a "trivia" book. Review copy pr [...]

    17. I have to admit that I did not watch one single episode of Mad Men. I do, however, love this cookbook inspired by the series. Many of the recipes are familiar to me having grown up in the 1960’s. They evoke an elegance of that time when folks dressed for dinner and families sat down together. This lovely collection has a great variety from cocktails to desserts. In addition there are wonder vintage photographs from that era and tie ins to the Mad Men series. Whether or not you were a fan of th [...]

    18. Each recipe in this Mad Men cookbook is related to or has appeared in an episode of Mad Men. The authors have included background info on each recipe. This made the book much more than a cookbook. It becomes a culinary history book. The details on the various cocktails featured was especially interesting and thorough.

    19. I received this book through First Reads program.I great companion to the show. Full of great facts as well as wonderful recipes. I loved the way the recipes tie into specific moments from the show. Worth looking at even if you don't plan to ever cook any of the food, though I would hope that people would try out some of the quirky 60's dishes.

    20. This is culinary time capsule of a world before microwaves, when sophisticated food was steak and creamed spinach, and Mai Tais were a window to the exotic world of the South Pacific accessible to jet setters.

    21. This is a great book for Mad Men fans. It has a lot of trivia regarding episodes, restaurants, food, and --my favorite--cocktails. Great gift idea for Mad Men fanatics and a fun way to indulge in your favorite show.

    22. Reading through this cookbook makes you want to step back through time to enjoy dinner parties with friends and neighbors and to amazing everyone with your home bar tending pizazz! Now, the only thing left to do is to through a themed dinner party wit my favorite drinks and cocktails!

    23. Even if you aren't a fan of Mad Men this is a fun collection of vintage recipes. Well-researched look into what Americans ate and drank (cocktails!) in the 1960s and the trends of the time.

    24. Love how they not only give you the recipes, they tell you about their history and tie it in to the episodes I mad men. Very cool. Wish every recipe had a photo, my only complaint.

    25. An interesting glimpse at the food and drink featured in many Mad Men episodes, with a episode guides, food history, etc especially to the delight of my cocktail nerd boyfriend.
