ABOUT THIS BOOK:
Long before Julia Child introduced French cooking to American palates, Charles Baker and The Derrydale Press published a highly unusual collection of recipes for its day: exotic recipes from around the world for unusual hors' d'oeuvres, soups, fish, shellfish, poultry, game, meat, vegetables, fruits and desserts. From avocado salad recipes discovered by the author in Cuba to grouse recipes from the Scottish moors, the author's tour de force belongs on the shelf of every serious cook.(Publisher). Fair.
