Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


Reading like a novel, this vintage cookbook traces the social lives of fictional newlyweds, interspersing menus for all occasions with household hints and anecdotes about family and friendship. A nostalgic look at homemaking in the early 20th century, this book is unintentionally hilarious and historically revealing, with many simple and surprisingly relevant recipes.
