Last Saturday our local library had its book sale and I scored a lot of cookbooks. Granted most of the stuff they had was quite old, but for $1 for hardcovers and 50-cents for softcovers, who can complain? Now I need a place to store all these books!
Anyway, I got a few spiral or home-bound books:
-Traditional Quebec Cooking by Micheline-Mongrain-Dontigny
-Authentic Indian-Mexican Recipes by William Hardwick
a small pamphlet circa 1965 of recipes from the Rio Grande region
-Unusual Acadian Recipes for the sweet toogh by Mercedes Vidrine
These are cake & pastry recipes from the Acadians that settled in Louisiana, aka Cajuns
-The Romaian Way of Cooking by The Geroy’s of St. Mary’s Romanian Orthodox Church in Ohio
Really, Romanian-american recipes, c. 1968
–Kauai Cookbook by the Kekaha Parent-Teacher’s Association
–Recipes: The Cooking of the Caribbean Islands
a Time-Life publication
Though I have several Caribbean cookbooks, i got this one because it helpfully mentions what country each recipe comes from. Often times Caribbean cookbooks don’t.
I also got several books from the Time-Life “Foods of the World” collection circa 1968. These are all hard cover books. I got:
and finally a couple of hardcover cookbooks
a translation of a Russian original circa 1974
-The Balkans Cookbook by Jugoslovenska Knjiga
The complete American Housewife – 1776 by Julianne Belote
A book on colonnial cooking circa 1974
Now it’s time for me to get cooking!
