Alice B. Toklas
(1877 - 1967)
Having lived much of her life in San Francisco, Alice B. Toklas at the age of thirty went to Paris, where she met Gertude Stein on her first night. She began serving as her assistant, continuing to type up manuscripts after the two had become life partners. In 1954 Toklas published her cookbook, The Alice B. Toklas Cookbook, containing recipes for, among other meals, “Bass for Picasso,” “Oeufs Francis Picabia,” and “Haschich Fudge” (“the food of Paradise”).
