Cookbook Giveaway: The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook

Make Mad Men-era recipes from The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook for Sunday's season premiere, like this Pineapple Upside Down Cake.

If you have Mad Men on the mind in anticipation of this Sunday’s big Season 5 premiere, why not cook up a retro dinner straight out of the era of Don Draper and crew? I know — when you think of immersing yourself into the world of Mad Men, cocktails are what come to mind. But 1960s American food plays an important supporting role in this show, and The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook: Inside the Kitchens, Bars, and Restaurants of Mad Men by Judy Gelman and Peter Zheutlin documents it all, dish by dish, episode by episode.

They include 70 recipes (including cocktails!) from 1960s New York restaurants and housewives’ dinner tables, each including a brief history and a rundown of where and when it appeared in Mad Men. This Sunday, mix up an Old Fashioned, Don’s go-to cocktail and the one he’s drinking in the opening scene of Mad Men (Season 1, Episode 1) — he’s in a smoky bar making notes on a napkin, drinking an Old Fashioned. Make an Avocado and Crabmeat Mimosa inspired by the Kennedys, Trudy’s Rib Eye in the Pan with Butter (the one Pete requests in Season 1, Episode 3) and Pineapple Upside Down Cake (like Sal and Kitty on Valentine’s Day, Season 2, Episode 1), plus Deviled Eggs, Waldorf Salad and more beloved favorites.

Add these dishes from The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook to your menu for Sunday’s dinner:
Don’s Old Fashioned
Avocado and Crabmeat Mimosa
Trudy’s Rib Eye in the Pan with Butter
Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Avocado and Crabmeat Mimosa is an elegant salad inspired by the Kennedys.

    I'd have to say my favorite Mad Men/ 1960's dish is no dish at all. I'll go with a beverage for this one, and that'd have to be a Mai Tai!
