Review

If you are looking for a good solid old fashioned cookbook, something that would have your grandma's recipe for snow pudding or pioneer stew, but also contains braised lamb with gremolata or grilled salmon with maple mustard glaze, then this is the one for you. Just also be aware that the format is smaller than the normal 8X10, but believe me my eyesight isn't what it used to be and the pages are so clean and uncluttered I didn't have trouble reading the print.

The book contains hints on many pages, such as to clean a pot with marks fill with water and add cream of tarter and bring to a boil, something my grandmother taught me, but doesn't seem to be well known today. There is a reference section including `how long will it keep' and `effects of freezing'.

Chapters include breakfast, appetizers, soups, salads, pasta, side dishes, poultry, meat, seafood, pasta, potatoes, breads, desserts, canning and preserving, barbecues. Comments and blue ribbon ratings are given.
