Drinks Vinny Mannering 7 comments

Will Peggy and Ted consumate their forbidden love? What's Bob Benson REALLY up to? And isn't it illegal for Sally Draper to be smoking at that age? We'll find out (sort of) in the latest edition of Let's Get Drunk Watching. More

Retro Desserts To Make For Your Mad Men Premiere Party

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

Season 6 of Mad Men premieres on Sunday, bringing with it Don, Peggy, Joan, and the whole whiskey-drinking, cigarette-smoking crew. It pretty much goes without saying that if you're trying to host a party with a Draper-approved atmosphere, you're getting built-in fun. Stiff cocktails are half that equation, and personally I think the other half is in dessert. More

What Are They Drinking on Mad Men?

Drinks Reid Mitenbuler 8 comments

What are the characters on Mad Men drinking? The short answer: everything, all the time. They also drink so much it's a surprise the alcohol vapors don't explode every time they light up their Lucky Strikes. But the specific drinks that the characters on Mad Men drink show us a period in American history when the drinkscape uniquely reflected the cultural forces that created it. More

After a long, painful wait, it's finally happening. I have my cocktail shaker on standby, my cherry apron around my waist, and a Pandora station dedicated to the Supremes. That's right, this Saturday, just a few short days away, Mad Men will make its season 5 premiere. More

The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook's Gambas au Beurre d'Escargot

Caroline Russock 2 comments

For The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook authors Judy Gelman and Peter Zheutlin have included a Lutèce classic, Gambas au Beurre d'Escargot, jumbo prawns gratinéed with a green garlicky butter spiked with licoricey Pernod. One might think that there are snails trying to sneak into this recipe, but it's just big sweet prawns cooked in the same butter that escargot are traditionally sizzled in. More

Hearts of Palm Salad

Serious Eats Caroline Russock Post a comment

While we're pretty certain that there isn't a more dated vegetable out there than canned hearts of palm, there's something about this salad that feels quite contemporary. Peppery watercress, mild hearts of palm, and buttery Bibb are dressed with a vinaigrette that is packed with capers, bits of pickle, and finely chopped egg white to make for a salad that's not only tasty but quite nice to look at as well.

The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook's Oysters Rockefeller

Caroline Russock 2 comments

Judy Gelman and Peter Zheutlin, authors of The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook, adapted this recipe for Oysters Rockefeller from a 1977 edition of The Grand Central Oyster Bar and Restaurant Seafood Cookbook. Over the years the Rockefeller recipe used at the storied Oyster Bar has changed but this one is that would be the closest to the ones that Don and Roger enjoyed. More

The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook's Shrimp Curry Butter Canapés

Caroline Russock 2 comments

If one were to host a Mad Men-themed get-together, chances are it would be a cocktail party rather than a sit-down dinner affair. And along with all of those Old Fashioneds, gimlets, and martinis, it's likely that instead of chips and dips or a cheese plate, snacks would come in the form of canapés. The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook is a wonderful source for all sorts of cocktail snacks of yore including these Shrimp Curry Butter Canapés. More

Where Is It: A Pizzeria from 'Mad Men'

Click me bigger » First, a confession: I haven't been watching Mad Men. Yes, I've heard it's good. But the last thing I have time for is another TV show to watch. Keep your tsk tsks out of the comments. (We're going to use them for something else.) Anyway, my coworker here at the Slice–Serious Eats office emailed me these photos after the episode on August 17 ("Three Sundays") aired: Here are screenshots from the 8/17 episode of Mad Men. After having dinner at Peggy's mom's house, the priest drops Peggy off "by the 4th Ave BMT." Assume Brooklyn.... More
