It contains original, vintage illustrations and full-colour photos (over 300 in all) reprinted with the nostalgic patina of a gently aged classic. The book has a practical side too! Easy-to-use tabbed chapters and over 100 recipes including beverages, breads, and sandwiches, candy and cookies, desserts, main dishes and vegetables and sides. This fun heirloom gift is perfect to give to children who are just beginning to cook.
