Re: Added this to my vintage cookbook collection!

@Sunshine45   I have this set of Woman's Day Encyclopedia of Cookery and it is wonderful.  I use lots of recipes from this set and have posted some in the Recipes forum here.

 

Has essays that are food related too.  Just a real treasure house of inspiration for all food related things.

@Sunshine45 . I have these cookbooks. I bought one each week at the grocery store the first year I was married (1967). I still read them quite often. I love all the stories from well known chefs at the time.

Re: Added this to my vintage cookbook collection!

My favorite vintage cookbook is a notebook from my Grandma that I found in my Mother's things.  It lists a lot of her recipes and to make it more special it is in her own handwriting.  Very precious to me!

I have this set too that I have had for many years.  My favorite recipe I cook from here is the Creamy Macaroni & Cheese.  I think I bought a volume a week at the A&P store.

@Swedish Ivy .  Yes, I think it was A&P.  I have aso been making that macaroni and cheese since forever. It is so good.

@Sunshine45   Do you know or could you check to see what the copyright date is on those books?  I have the set but mine are packed up in a box somewhere in my 'junk room'....

@KatieB . Yes, the copyright date is 1966. They were first offered in my grocery store in Miami in 1967. They offered one a week for twelve weeks.

@proudlyfromNJ   Thanks for the info.  I used to work at Thalhimer's Department Store in the summers when I was in high school.  A lady that I worked with (Mrs. Ritchie, from Savannah, GA)  gave me this set of books.   She had the best southern accent (I'm from NC, so I have a southern accent too, but not like hers).  

 

These books are fun to read
