Submitter: I am not a big fan of cookbooks that have no pictures at all. I like to see what I might be making. That way I know it came out right. At least if it looks right. Although I do believe ethnic cook books do have a place in public libraries, I am not sure this one warrants the space on shelf. Old (1977), no pictures and Yugoslavia broke up after 1989.
Holly: I agree that the no-picture format is not ideal. I also agree that this is old. However, if there is a large population in your community of people from that region – Slovenia, Croatia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina – they may find comfort and nostalgia in familiar recipes like these. As always, though, if it is not circulating, it’s probably not worth its space. Know your community!
