A World of Good Eating: A Collection of Old and New Recipes from Many Lands

United States: Phillips Publishers, Inc., 1951. A most charming cookbook of recipes from around the world, beautifully illustrated by Ellen A. Nelson. The decoration appears to have children in mind. The cookbook, which is described as being "Tested in the kitchen of a New England housewife" named Heloise Frost, begins by introducing the recipes with enthusiasm: "To some people food is something to eat. Nothing more. To others, food is a poem, an adventure... It is color, nostril-tingling smells, mouth-watering tastes- an idea to stir the imagination" (p. 5). Recipes from the following regions are represented: the British Isles (incl. Yorkshire Pudding, Irish Boiled Potatoes, Stuffed Roulettes); China (incl. Chinese Almond Cakes, Don-Ku); France (incl. French Bread, Savarin); Germany (incl. Anise Drops, Sauerbraten); Italy (incl. Pizza, Lasagna, Veal Scaloppini); Poland (incl. Paprika Chicken, Barszcz); Scandinavia (incl. Swedish Glögg, Smörgåsbord); and America (incl. Boston Baked Beans, Lemon Meringue Pie). Each section has its own full-page color illustration title, with smaller whimsical illustrations peppered throughout. 8vo (8" by 6"), pp. 128 with in-text illustrations, bound in original spiral binding with illustrated wrappers. Fine; some light toning only.
