I first read this title thinking you had to be pretty to serve this food. Well, so much for serving attractively at my house! I am also intrigued by the concept of a “dew-fresh hostess” as described on the back cover. Not only do I have to serve nice food, but I have to look “dew-fresh” serving it. At my age, I think I fall under the dry and crusty category.
This book hasn’t circulated in over a decade, so I am ready to say that this is a shelf-sitter. (Library tongue twister: say that 5 times fast). I am sure there is nothing wrong with this book other than it screams “my library’s cookbook collection is dated.”
Take a look at these pictures and ask yourself, “Does the food look attractive?” Maybe it did in 1976.
