Whet Your Appetite

Appetizers
Hoffman
1980

Yum! With holiday entertaining in full swing, you might want to add a few of these treats to your menu. As you can see from the pictures below, there is a whole lot of interesting recipes to try. Of course we have a few molded recipes as appropriate for the era. Tuna Mousse and other molds and loafs are all over this book. The color selection ranges from a pale pink to a lime green. I shudder to think what these taste like. As a cookbook, the layout is terrible. Pictures illustrating techniques are not always located near the recipes. I had to search around for the companion recipe. Not good for 1980 and really not good for 2017.

Fearless Cooking for Crowds
Evans
1986

With Thanksgiving nearly here and the rest of the holiday madness kicking into high gear, it is time to break out some recipes for your special holiday meals. Evidently the woman on the cover has been taken over by some robot species and forced to create special family dinners. Nothing says “festive” robotic Stepford wives armed with complicated recipes. Or possibly she is really is afraid of cooking.

The actual recipes are decent. I guess we will eat well when the robot overlords come to steal our souls.

The Pleasure of Cooking

Cooking Pleasure
Permanent Cookware
1976

Who knew cooking was all about the pleasure? Doesn’t this couple look like they are having a good time? You just know that the guy in the picture is just so happy to give his wife some cookware. The recipes are typical of the period and are not really that exciting. I am a bit disturbed about the recipe called Mock Lobster. Not sure “mock” anything is going to be that good.

Now go forth and experience the pleasure!
