Food of the Fifties with Ruth Chier Rosen

"This cookbook was the mother of them all. It was my very first attempt to present my favorites from my own lifetime at the table. You can see that the tabbed divisions* are a bit on the untutored side when it comes to ordering them in a more reasonable way of the future books. But I must admit I have a special feeling about this book for that reason. And the stumble in original title is also special. Not bad for the FIRST of 40."
* Tabbed divisions are:
• Bread, Cake, Cookies • Desserts • Eggs, Milk, Cheese • Fish, Shellfish • Meats • Pastry, Pies • Poultry, Game • Salads & Dressing • Soups • Vegetables

Due to popular demand, we revised this 6 years after original publication. It gave me a chance to format it like all my other books, and move the tabs & content around for better flow. Take a look!
