RECIPES OUT OF BILIBID

We've heard repeatedly that men in prison camps everywhere talked and dreamed of food. Here is evidence- tangible evidence- for this is a collection of actual recipes, repeated and discussed endlessly in long hours of hunger and desolation at Bilibid. Some of the recipes came to Col. Fowler from other prison camps, where they heard what he was doing. And the recipes, written on insides of envelopes, on scraps of paper, have been tested and approved by Dorothy Wagner. It is a slim book, but it has a lively quality, an imaginative quality, that makes one feel that here a recipe, there a recipe, must be good if the memory, in such detail, could bring it to the fore under such circumstances. There's no attempt to make it an organized and orderly collection; the arrangement is by national sources,- American, British, Chinese, French, etc. And there are tips on techniques that are worth attention. A new kind of cookbook, for the specialist. And for men.
