Francis Lederer: Recipe for Ginger Beef

Francis Lederer co-starred with Louise Brooks in the German-made film, Pandora's Box (1929). In the 1930's, Lederer moved to Hollywood, were he acted in many films and developed a following. Lederer had enough of a following over the years that he was asked to contribute to a booklet of the time, What COOKS in Hollywood (1949). Also featured in the book is Claire Trevor (who co-starred in King of Gamblers), Bing Crosby, Loretta Young, Lucille Ball, Gary Cooper, Kirk Douglas, Barbara Stanwyck, Frank Sinatra, Shelley Winters, Roy Rogers, Warner Baxter, Joan Crawford, William Holden, Joan Bennett, Betty Hutton, and Fred MacMurray, among others.


Presented here is Lederer's recipe for Ginger Beef, alongside Dorothy Lamour's recipe for Chipped Beef Rarebit. Lamour can be heard singing, not cooking, on RadioLulu. Enjoy, and bon apetit.
