KIRKUS REVIEW

How to start a cottage industry in your kitchen. After some blithe advice on contacting the Small Business Administration and keeping proper records (""record-keeping supplies are available at the local stationary store""), Feinman scatters ideas like confetti, directing them at those ladies who like to bake their pies by the dozen. You can: construct holiday gingerbread houses, prepare box lunches for ""busy executives"", cater parties, write a best-selling cookbook, carve apple dolls (old Appalachian folk custom), or concoct CARE packages for the college crowd (their moms will pay). Besides the shower of schemes, Feinman supplies little practical guidance: nothing at all about kitchen logistics, labor input, equipment, or capital investment. There are occasional and indifferent recipes along with assurances that ""developing specialties is easy""--try the women's magazines. For the rest, Feinman counsels, ""Make lists. Think it all over."" Then get a job as a typist.
