“220 Deliciously Distinctive Desserts” I was all ready to make fun of this Technicolor collection from 1955, but actually these recipes from the Staff Home Economists at the Culinary Arts Institute are pretty snazzy. My demeanor changed from snark to desire. I could FEEL the weight gain!
Sections include: Cakes, Frostings & Fillings, Cookies, Pastry & Pies, Custards, Soufflés & Puddings, Sauces, Frozen Desserts, and Flaming Desserts (tee hee). The Genoise Cake made me swoon, the Baked Alaska made me hungry, the Kiss and Tell Cake made me smile, and the recipe for Hard Sauce made me giggle. And wow, who doesn’t need a recipe for Fabulous Chocolate Party Cade for 36!
This collection is perfect for the budding pastry chef in your family, someone interested in how they USED to do things, or for someone just starting their own vintage cookbook collection. A real steal!
68 pages; 6 x 8.5 inches; 1958.
Condition: Fair to Good. Wear on the back cover, staining throughout and a burn mark which shows up as a stain on several pages. Well loved :)
