TITLE: THE LADIES AID COOKBOOK

AUTHOR: Beatrice Vaughan; illustrated by John Devaney

PUBLISHER, COPYRIGHT INFO: The Stephen Greene Press, 1977, assumed first edition

DESCRIPTION: Hardcover with dust jacket, 6 1/4" x 9 1/4", 186 pp.

BLURB/FLYLEAF: Dedicated "...to every woman who has ever peeled a bushel of potatoes for a public supper, baked half a dozen pies for a food sale, then stood on tired feet through a hot August afternoon to sell them."

This cookbook is not a manual of quantity cooking for fund-raising purposes. Instead, quite the other way - it's a family cookbook of over 300 tested recipes, all from a time-honored source: the women's community organizations variously named Auxiliary, Sisterhood, Circle, Guild Society, but almost universally called "Ladies Aid."

This is cooking that has to be better than best, for into it has gone the culinary know-how of generations of American women outdoing themselves in behalf of public suppers and "socials," of old-time institutional food sales and bazaars organized to raise funds for community projects and helpful endeavor - a true nourishing of the American way throughout our land. Thus, the book offers a full range of choice for the meal planner and budgeter: Soups, Stews, Chowders, Salads, Fish, Meats, Poultry, Casseroles, and Lunch/Supper dishes, Vegetables, Breads, Pies, Cakes, Puddings, Sandwiches and Beverages.

Distributed through the book are the author's own vignettes of potluck suppers, box socials, country receptions, sunshine baskets, and summer food sales; so that Beatrice Vaughan again has written a cookbook "as delightful to read as to cook by!" -- Boston Globe

CONDITION BOOK: Very Good+, with tight and square binding, clean and bright pages.

CONDITION DUST JACKET: Very Good, with overall shelf wear, a few small rips/chips/tears.
