Foreword from 1962: "What shall I serve? That is the question that determines when your guests should arrive, how many can be accommodated comfortably, and how informal we can be. In the largely servant-less homes today, it is often easier to entertain after dinner when the children are settled for the night. Each section which follows contains recipes to suit a type of occasion. Fast feasts are those things easily prepared or prepared largely in advance for easy, quick serving. Midnight suppers are more elaborate; Casseroles permit one dish serving; Coffee and . . . are dessert servings and Beverages vary from alcoholic to soft, hot to cold. You can make your snacks as elaborate or simple as you like depending upon what you serve with it. Hot rolls, assorted breads and crackers, relishes and salads can be added to the menu.
Entertaining is as should be as personal as your own signature.
