Here's snappy, and sensible, cookery, garbed in neat typographical design, the author's familiar art work and in-the-know argot. A good basic book, it combines essentials with the simple yet tasty frills so dear to the heart, and stomach, of the coke and hot dog circuit. Recipe-hunting beyond the egg boiling department yields clearly categorized explanations for all types of dishes (soup to nuts) and more basics for practically every attribute of kitchen life from wise buying and redolent spice shelves to the well timed sauce and the fluffy divinity- not entirely geared to puerile palates. Roast beef and the more orthodox menu suggestions share honors with the hamburgers supreme. To Betz fans who haven't taken ""home ec"" or want to wow the gang by making drug store delights right in their own homes...satisfaction guaranteed.
