Our "Mad Men" Menu

Steve and I are excited about the return of “Mad Men” on Sunday night. Naturally, there has to be special menu for the night, and we’ve been using this cookbook as our planning guide.  Looks like we’ll be having:


Shrimp Curry Butter Canapes (inspired by the Rockefeller Fundraiser episode)

Wedge Salad (inspired by the Palm, perhaps the chophouse where Don and Roger charmed the Madison Square Garden account guys)

Trudy’s Ribeye in the Pan (back when Trudy was worried about making Pete happy)
Sauteed Mushrooms (I'm free-lancing this one)

Faye Miller’s Chocolate Chip Cookies (the bribe Dr. Faye Miller brings to aid her focus group presentation)

Read an excerpt from the book here.


DC-area author Leslie Pietrzyk explores the creative process and all things literary.
