Cookbook Tributes Beatles’ Golden Anniversary
Good news, Beatles fans: While you’re reflecting on the passage of a half-century since the release of the band’s first LP, you can celebrate the band’s groundbreaking music by baking all the meals listed in a brand new Beatles-inspired cookbook.
The book, due in mid-March, is titled ‘Recipe Records: A Culinary Tribute to The Beatles,’ and offers 50 Beatles-themed recipes, including, um, “I Should’ve Known Butter, Strawberry Pie Forever, The White Album Fondue, Let It Brie, Stuffed Sgt. Peppers, Lady Medallions, Ob-La-Di Ob-La Slaw, Roll Up For the Magical Mystery Wrap and George Martinis.”
‘Recipe Records’ author Lanea Stagg is apparently well known to the Beatles faithful; according to the press release announcing the book’s release, she’ll be “making her inaugural appearance with her cookbooks at this year’s Fest for Beatles Fans in Secaucus, NJ on April 5 – 7.” Her new collection is just the latest in an ongoing series of books, which also includes ‘Recipe Records: The ’60s Edition,’ home to such recipes as “Like a Rolling Scone, House of the Rising Bun, I Fought the Slaw and the Slaw Won, and People Everywhere Just Got to Be Brie.” As Stagg promises on her website, “This is not an ordinary cookbook! It’s full of music knowledge, entertaining stories, trivia, anecdotes and recommendations.”
