Frank DeCaro, author of The Dead Celebrity Cookbook, is heard each weekday morning on his own live national call-in program, The Frank DeCaro Show, on Sirius XM Satellite Radio, which now boasts more than 25 million subscribers. His radio guests have run the gamut from Justin Bieber to Ernest Borgnine, and his following across North America is as loyal as it is diverse. Known as both a writer and a performer, DeCaro pens the "Icons" column on vintage television for CBS's Watch! magazine. For years as a fashion editor, he wrote the "Style Over Substance" column for The New York Times. A graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, DeCaro has written for myriad publications including The New York Times Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, Newsweek, Vogue, and TV Guide. As a performer, DeCaro has appeared on the ABC sitcom Cougar Town, The Rosie O'Donnell Show, The Joy Behar Show, and numerous talking-head programs. He is best known for his six-and-a-half-year stint as the movie critic on The Daily Show and a forty-episode run of the game show I've Got a Secret. In 2010, he cocreated the YouTube sensation "Betty White Lines," a rap tribute to the Golden Girls star which was featured on the Today show, Showbiz Tonight, and dozens of blogs, and got more than 100,000 hits in its first week online. In addition, the award-winning DeCaro is the author of the groundbreaking A Boy Named Phyllis: A Suburban Memoir, which Vanity Fair called "hilarious" and The Advocate credited as opening the door for David Sedaris and "the gay American humorist as everyman." His follow-up work, a coffee table biography called Unmistakably Mackie: The Fashion and Fantasy of Bob Mackie, earned a B+ in Entertainment Weekly. DeCaro lives with his husband, writer Jim Colucci, in New York City and suburban New Jersey. Visit the author at deadcelebritycookbook.com.
"Refining the approach he pioneered in 2011's The Dead Celebrity Cookbook, DeCaro returns with a holiday-themed collection of the good, bad, and ugly dishes purportedly served by a litany of Hollywood stars." --Publishers Weekly, October 2012
"With each passing year, it gets harder and harder to publish a book combining food, Christmas/holiday season and general entertaining topics without being repetitive and rather samey. Fortunately, the publishers of this book have got over that problem for the 2012 Holiday Season! In essence, author Frank De Caro of Dead Celebrity Cookbook fame digs into his archives to rustle up a Holiday Season menu full of Hollywood glamour, glitz and a dashing of kitsch for good measure from 'Golden Years' past." --;nbsp;YUM.FI--Darren Ingram "http: //yum.fi/ & Netgalley "
