A Rose: Alice Babette Toklas

30 April 1877 – 7 March 1967

American, the confidante, lover, cook, secretary, muse, editor, critic,

and organizer of Gertrude Stein. It has been said that Ernest Hemingway, who often visited with The Salon, saw Gertrude and Alice as husband and wife. Her 1933 Autobiography of Alice B Toklas was not actually written by her, but Stein. Her most famous recipe – the hashish baked brownies was actually not hers at all.

The Stein heirs took much of the art collection contained in the salon on Stein’s death. Her own 1963 autobiography, What I Remember, ends with the death of Stein.
