Bon vivant Joseph Pasternak is the Hungarian born Hollywood producer who also seems to be an incomparable chef and these dishes, with which he has entertained the entertainment world for years, are pretty alluring. Names are among the condiments he sprinkles throughout here but he does so with a Jovial largesse. He manages to take roots with the most ordinary origins, say carrots, and add cognac. But it's not all on this plateau; there are lasagnas, goulashes- inevitably, and many meals which are easy to prepare while primarily party-oriented. Be his guest.
