KIRKUS REVIEW

An answer to a problem that every church and club faces-the need for tasty quantity recipes that afford variety and provide varying quantities. A careful analysis of this excellent cookbook shows that the quantity range is wide- from 4 to 400; it's a matter of selection. Don't choose meat leaf, baked devilled eggs, cheese grill or baked peaches with crusty topping for big affairs. Nor smorgasbord provender for the family. There are useful tips on equipment, quantity purchases and measurements, short cuts to planning and executing the plans. There is attention paid to the seasonal problems. And the recipes are grouped under such headings as Suppers, Teas, Covered Dish Affairs, Snacks, Outdoor Cookery, Foreign Cookery, etc. The only other book I know that compares with it (and this one is a bigger affair on all counts) is Quantity Cookery by Treat & Richards (Little, Brown).
