This is a very comprehensive book of depression era recipes. What I like most is the origin of condiments - how to make ketchup, mayonnaise, home-made bread.
The resourcefulness of cooks during that time is amazing.

I count this as one of my top ten absolutely must have cookbooks. It is solid- with good recipes that knows how to cut corners (hello, depression era) without cutting taste. If I'm low on ingredients or time I go here. It is amazingly useful and full of great ideas about how to really cook... I don't know how to say this clearly, but cook the "essence" of a dish. Not a lot of unnecessary frills or unneeded ingredients. I think it would be an excellent book for people really wanting to learn how ...more

I'll be the first to admit I am not an experienced cook. The recipes in this book, though, are easy to follow and sound delicious. Well, most of them, do. Fried Sweetbreads is one I think I'll pass on.

Besides the tasty food, at the bottom of some pages are historical tidbits about what happened in the world during the Depression. Did you know the Hostess Twinkie was invented in Chicago back in 1930? Maybe some of those are still around and even edible after all this time.
