Anonymous said: In which hotel was Club Boyar Chicago located? There is a photo of the "piano man".

Without you telling me which book I cited in the post I wouldn’t know where to look, sorry.
In any case I usually typed all the information from the photo caption and credits, so if an hotl wasn’t mentioned, it probably wasn’t noted or perhaps club Boyer was not in an hotel.

It’s Tour de France time and Gabriel Gaté is his Taste le Tour again. http://www.sbs.com.au/food/programs/taste-le-tour
Gabriel Gaté in 1981. My (mothers) copy looks a bit grotty and well used.

I resisted photographing my friend’s 60’s Chef oven at dinner last night.

Even when she brought out her latest thrift shop finds and we laughed over the hilarious models in the mid century knitting patterns and magazines, my iPhone stayed in my pocket.
