A memoir of glamorous 1960s London-with bonus dinner party recipes. In this book, famed interior designer Mary Gilliatt recounts some of the dinner parties she enjoyed with her husband, who was the best man at Princess Margaret's wedding. The political, royal, publishing, and entertainment worlds collided at these elegant tables, and Gilliatt shares reminiscences of Peggy Guggenheim, Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers, Marlene Dietrich, Arthur Koestler, Oliver Sacks, and many more. In addition, she includes some of the recipes used-a mixture of the indulgent and the doable-so you can create some memorable dinner parties of your own.
