|The 1964 edition. This book is almost too tome-ish|
to read for fun. But, seriously, it has pretty much any recipe
that you can think of.
|A very amusing read.|
I particularly like vintage cookbooks. They all seem to tell a story about what people were doing in a certain era. It's fascinating how much you can learn about people through their food. I wonder what people will say in 50 years when they look at cookbooks from our era.
|Just a little contrast between the above vintage|
cookbooks and a modern cookbook.
The recipes in this cookbook are delicious, by the way.
And finally, I love the thought of people from all different time periods writing cookbooks so that the concept of how we eat food could be changed just a little for the better.
