Mrs. Appleyard's Kitchen (1974 out of print reprint)


by Louise Andrews Kent, Keats Publishing, 1974 reprint of 1942 classic. Out of print. Charming if old-fashioned book that mixes the fictional account of Mrs. Appleyard of Woodbrook Green, Massachusetts, and her firm opinions about family and friends, with recipes, or receipts as she calls them. From the book description: "Mrs. Appleyard's ideas about things to eat -- their selection, their preparation, and especially the proper mental and social attitudes toward them -- are set forth with the charm, the humor, the good sense and good taste ('taste' is a notably appropriate word) that characterized the earlier record of that (fictional) American matron." Trade paperback, 319 pages. Condition: book VG+, cover with crease, VG.
