KIRKUS REVIEW

Most people will recognize the source for these recipes- Bookbinder's restaurant opened in Philadelphia in 1865 and is still famous for its seafood and fish. Charlotte Adams, author of cookbooks such as SAS World-Wide Restaurant Cookbook and Reduce and Eat Well, has enlisted the aid of Bookbinder's chef in choosing these home-tested recipes of ""typical American"" cooking. Soups and omelet variations abound; so do seafood and fish recipes, most of them prepared with cream sauces or as casseroles with relatively short preparation and cooking time; the potted meats and creamed poultry recipes are unexciting; sauces and dressings are useful but standard; vegetables and salads are sparse. This may have a special appeal for frequenters of Bookbinder's, but for the rest, these recipes will be extracts from most standard American cookbooks.
