I got three of the Grand Diplome Cooking Course collection. The entire set has twenty books and I already had one, which I got a duplicate of on Saturday. It was a set of three or none; I opted for a duplicate. Perhaps the other 17 will show up at thrift stores in the future?
I also picked up a copy of the Golden Rule Cook Book by Mrs. Ida Cogswell Bailey Allen from 1921, the Ann Sather's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Cookbook, and the Mystery Chef's Own Cook Book.
There was an amazing amalgamation of pamphlets:
- Merry Meals Recipe Book from the Altoona Mirror
- Sauces & Relishes from Eatmor Cranberries company
- Cooking With Velveeta
- The Golden Spoon Guide to a richer way of cooking from the PET milk company
- Kraft's Main Dish Cook Book
I'm fond of the following pamphlet titles:
- June Frost's Recipe Book "Frozen Foods Are Better Foods" touting that's "It's More Patriotic to Use a Locker!"
- Food Is Fun from the American Gas Association asserting that "Cooking is like Dancing!"
- Pies Men Like published for General Motors Men and Women by the Personnel and Employee Relations Staff. When was the last time your place of employment offered you cooking tips?
I can tell you that I walked away from several packages of additional pamphlets. summer's coming and I'm looking forward to receiving fresh produce on a weekly basis from the Swier Family Farm. But first? I'm going to take a look at The Passionate Palate and Cook & Tell - two cookbooks I've had forever, but rarely cook from. Should be tasty!
