The author of the popular game and fish cookery books, Catch 'Em and Cook 'Em and HOOK 'Em and Cook 'Em, was challenged by her son- about to be married- to out together some of the family favorites, spanning two generations or more. This is the result- and as she says, the quilt is still growing. It is not an all-inclusive cookbook; some sections have a mere handful of recipes. But the ""heirloom ?ecipes"" are here, the traditional dishes for special occasions, the penny pinchers for the newly-weds, the short cuts when company comes or time at a premium, the regional dishes (Pennsylvania, Maryland, and the Jersey shore), the Sunday specials and the fish cookery in which she has a special touch. Quantity dishes (for as many as twenty), casseroles -- these are here, often with a creative, original touch. Occasionally one questions omission of numbers served (does anyone make mincemeat for one pie- yet the recipe might indicate this). But in the main, here is another book for the first cookery shelf.
