South American Gentleman's Companion

29.95

The Cocktail Kingdom reprint of Charles H. Baker Jr.'s South American Gentleman's Companion, with new introduction and additional material by St. John Frizell. 

A follow-up to Baker’s The Gentleman’s Companion, first published in 1939 and reprinted in 1946 by Crown Publishers, The South American Gentleman’s Companion takes the reader on a vicarious journey through South America to explore the drinks, food and people that Baker discovered on his travels. Through Baker’s colorful prose, The South American Gentleman’s Companion provides a glimpse at a globe-trotting gourmand’s life in the mid-20th century, while Frizell's introduction offers "A  Look at the Book” and background on the author himself, garnered from four months following Baker’s footsteps throughout South America and meticulously researching the story of this curious character.

Can be signed and inscribed by St. John Frizell if you like! At checkout, you'll be asked if you want it signed, and who you want it inscribed to.
