"Recipes from a Tap Dancer" (Hardcover): My mother, Mary Louise Winter, danced professionally--tap, ballet, toe, and ballroom--and ran the La Mar School of Dance in the 1930's. After marrying my father in San Francisco in 1936, she traded in her career and became a housewife, mother of five, and the best cook that I have ever known.
This little cookbook is a collection of my mother's recipes, is illustrated with promotional studio photos from her dancing days, and is my tribute to her creative and flamboyant life.
