The Ballet Cook Book: Alicia Markova's Recipes

We must admit that we didn't expect to find "Two Sandwiches" to be the title of the sole recipe in The Ballet Cook Book for ballet icon Alicia Markova! 

"Always being so busy," she says, "and often in the theater for hours on end, I like them best. And they remain fresh."
