This Betty Crocker Facsimile Edition includes tried and true recipes: They may have been invented in the ‘50s, but these recipes have withstood the test of time. Vichyssoise, Parmesan Oven-Fried Chicken, Baked Alaska Angel Food Cake, Stuffed Leg of Lamb, Gourmet Potato Salad, Herb Batter Bread, Gay Nineties Charlotte Russe, and Mulled Cider, and Brownie Peppermint Pie all have plenty of appeal today.
It's the real thing! A primer on 1950s-style entertaining: Dinners and buffets, after-dinner coffee, stag parties, midnight suppers, dessert-and-coffee, barbecues, brunch, and potlucks. A charming snapshot of that era, with its rules of etiquette, turns of phrase, and recipes, such as: "When is the telephone best for invitations?” “When Guests Arrive” “When Guests Leave” How to serve a small dinner for up to six people and much more!
