***** Vintage - 1965 FIRST EDITION - Woman's Day Encyclopedia of Cookery *****
From my late mother's collection, a full set of cookbooks that were slightly used but well cared for!
Discover something old but new in this FIRST EDITION set from 54 years ago!! This would be a great gift for a culinary student, a chef, or anyone who enjoys vintage recipes and culinary history!
From the cookbook forward:
"To the best of our knowledge, no work of this magnitude ever has been undertaken by any author, editor, or publisher in America. The editors of Woman's Day, with a special staff of experts, present to you this Encyclopedia of Cookery, a comprehensive and colorful library on all culinary matters.
The twelve-volume encyclopedia contains in its 2,000 pages:
8,500 recipes from all over the world
1,500 food illustrations in color
50 special cook books
1,000+ food definitions.
In addition, there are full details about all foods, their nutritive and caloric values, how to buy, serve, prepare, and cook them. There is a history of food and cooking, articles on nutrition, diet, entertaining, menu planning, herbs and spices. Every topic of culinary interest is covered. Five years of intensive work have gone into its preparation, backed by twenty-five years of food and cookery experience in the publication of Woman's Day.
We think you will find this Encyclopedia of Cookery the most complete and authoritative work ever published on the subject. It is a library for everyone who cares about good food and the fine art of preparing it."
