KIRKUS REVIEW

I anyone with a freezer or not- to read these tempting recipes and original ideas for combinations of foods for parties, without deciding then and there to some and on an individual scale if not for mass production. But for the owner of a freeze, blessed with time and ambition, here are mouth watering ideas that assure the ambitious housewife a secure gourmet reputation. There is a brief introduction as to the hows and whys of planning ahead and stocking that freezer; notes on how to freeze left in individual packages; warnings on the time element when electricity break down, something on stencils, packaging materials, etc. She then goes through the routine. menus, in between parties, luncheons, suppers, branches, special occasions and a final section on ""frozen assets"", a good misecliany. Besides are provided which take into consideration preparation, quantity, freezing, storing, and finally cooking to serve. And usually these are recipes that can be for use in smaller units. This measures up to the standard set in her earlier books.
