EASY AS PIE by BENJAMIN DARLING
Recipe booklets and pamphlets were very popular in the first half of the 2oth century and were given away as a premium to help cooks learn to use products (largely foodstuffs and appliances) to best advantage. Given that the recipes carried the brand, justified the purchase, and, if successful, encouraged repeat use of the product, great effort was made to make the best and tastiest recipes possible. Thus recipe pamphlets contain some wonderful recipes, as this book shows. Wherever possible this book is faithful to the original recipes, in some cases when it seemed that the recipe was either wrong to begin with or that tastes had changed to such an extent that most would be disappointed with the result, there have some been minor corrections.
