Food of the Fifties with Ruth Chier Rosen

Thank You Mister ColumbusThank You Mister Columbus: The Choice Cuisine of Italy
144 pages, Copyright 1956
"Italian cuisine has captured the taste buds of the food conscious everywhere. Travelers come back from Italy to delight their family and friends with the typically Italian dishes which can be so well duplicated at home. G.I.'s are in part responsible for the upsurge in popularity of Italian food. If you think you enjoy partaking of it, you'll be enchanted with cooking it. Here, color, texture, seasoning and infinite variations on the typical spaghetti and meat balls can run riot. I invite you to the pleasures of setting out a fine Italian repast with this collection of famous and obscure favorite dishes of Italians and more and more Americans each day. You, too, will thank Mr. Columbus."
