KIRKUS REVIEW

A cookbook, and more than a cookbook, which brings a health as well as budget conscious approach to the planning and preparation of meals, and which will enable you to cut your food bills from anywhere from 15 to 30%. An experienced dietician, Dr. Allen emphasizes at all times the conservation of nutrients as well as costs, shows the way in which to fortify foods as well as substitute inexpensive alternates, and is by no means indifferent to the possibilities of serving interesting and attractive as well as economical meals. Some 1300 recipes, which include canapes and candies, as well as more substantial items will not be too difficult for the average cook, even though she may find herself cooking a little more, and eliminating packaged products. For housewives, rather than hostesses, this is a practical and practicable guide.
