While the gentlemen frolicked with the house ladies upstairs, bordello kitchen maids set out to satisfy other appetites, fixing meals to keep the customers happy ""at the rest stops,"" as author Jo Foxworth cheerfully relates in The Bordello Cookbook. Filled with amusing anecdotes and biographical sketches about the famous madams of earlier days, this lively cookbook features recipes by Jeanne Bauer that reflect the dishes of famous ""houses"" such as the Everleigh's in Chicago and Houston's Chicken Ranch.
