Food of the Fifties with Ruth Chier Rosen

Nippon TheseNippon These: The Fine Art of Oriental Cooking
140 pages, Copyright 1961
"There is no easier place to have the twain meet, East and West, than in the kitchen. When customs, habits and pleasures of other lands and people become familiar, understanding of their attitudes and ideas becomes easier. The cuisine of Japan, China, Philippines and Korea is presented in this book, first because it is really an adventure in good eating and then with the hope of increasing interest in one another on a people to people level.
Many thousands of Americans are traveling eastward. We have conferred with Japanese, Chinese, Philippine and Korean friends to select authentic dishes that can be readily duplicated in America with ingredients obtainable locally. If you are planning a trip to these countries, you will be eating many of these foods in your travels."
