KIRKUS REVIEW

The best practical cookbook based on the use of wines and spirits so far issued in this country. Compare with The Wine Cook Book by the Browns (and published by Little, Brown) see page 119 of the bulletins. That is a book for the fastidious hostess with a large menage and ample means, or for the hostelry specializing in the gastronomic arts. This is a cookbook for the everyday housekeeper, who wants to be up to the minute, and to take advantage of the opportunity repeal has brought again her way. Contains 500 recipes, arranged in order of natural courses, and 100 menus, with page references to necessary recipes. Some space -- but not much -- is given to general treatment of types of wines and spirits, handling, etc. And some space given to the unusual in drinks, rather than the stereotyped. An excellent book for the one and only good for the long haul.
