I don't know whether gourmet is the right word, since a lot of the stars provide pretty low-brow recipes. Paul Revere (of the Raiders) offers his chili dog chili recipe. Lesley Gore -- of "It's My Party and I'll Cry if I Want To" fame -- reveals her fave recipe for "Snick Snack Hamburgers" (tomato soup is the secret ingredient). And Star Trek's Leonard Nimoy has a yen for "Cold Soup Nimoy" made with sour cream and two cans of cream of celery soup. The Rolling Stones submitted "Hot Dogs on the Rocks," which requires only three ingredients: hot dogs, mashed potatoes and canned baked beans.
The book also features Egyptian-born Omar Sharif's fried chicken recipe (who would have guessed?), Sally Field's cheesecake, Jane Fonda's "Curried Chicken a la Kiki" and Sonny and Cher's "Perfect Pork Chops." Each member of The Monkees submitted his own recipe, including Peter Tork's "Mad Mandarin Salad" which the book describes as "a great no-cook dish that everyone flips over."
The recipe's after the jump.
Peter Tork's Mad Mandarin Salad
1 cup pineapple chunks
1 cup canned Mandarin oranges
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup sour cream
