Gatsby Food

The perfect menu for a Great Gatsby party featuring foods talked about in the book!What is a party without food and we rounded up recipes for foods discussed in The Great Gatsby starting with this Lemon Cake Recipe from Through Her Looking Glass.  This was a dessert featured in the book when Nick served them at Tea.

Another recipe coming into style around 1920 – FRIED CHICKEN! Tom and Daisy are seen with this on the table after the big accident. Feel free to cheat and grab some KFC!

At Nick’s first Gatsby party he sees many spiced baked hams on Gatsby’s tables right next to harlequin salads. What now? Well, salads were coming into vogue around this time and, in particular, The Waldorf Salad was being served all over.

Ever heard of a Gin Rickey? Well, Tom drinks quite a lot fo them in the book. So surprise your guests with this signature cocktail.

Also, you need some deviled eggs. Trust. They are a big hit, easy to make in bulk and were def the appetizer trending at the time.
