Foreword from 1964: "Following are several pages listing various categories of convenience food...INSTANT in this book is a relative term. In experimenting with recipes that would be instant from start to finish, I had to eliminate many excellent recipes which took an instant to assemble, but had to set, chill, heat, bake, or simmer unattended to finish. I have included these relatively instant recipes in this book as well as recipes which take an instant compared to the conventional methods... More than twenty-four and a half million women, half of them married, holding one third of the nations jobs, and earning over $45,000,000 annually, need INSTANTLY DELICIOUS. Appetizing food is available at every stage of readiness, awaiting imaginative combining, garnishing, chilling or heating. Food is available as powder, flake or cube, dehydrated, packaged, canned, bottled, jarred, frozen, ready to cook, bake, defrost, ready to heat and even just ready to eat. Some ready to eat foods do not please the individual. Included here are ways of altering them to your taste with ease. Quality and appeal need not to be sacrificed for speed and convenience. Stock convenience food to eliminate hours of marketing, preparation and cooking time. These recipes provide ideas for using our wealth of convenience food and equipment..."
