KIRKUS REVIEW

This cookbook has been designed for the gal living alone on not too much before she marries a millionaire. You will have to bear with a somewhat bachelor girl-ish commentary- ibid ""Find the most voluptuous strawberries around, rinse, and take those little green things off the end."" But there's a fair amount of miscellaneous intelligence, on wines, equipment, on cooking for yourself, or that man, or giving a ""deadly little dinner"" for relatives, and the recipes go all the way from dressing up the hamburger to a genuine meal. A fair amount of ""cheating"" is recommended-- they don't believe in baking that chocolate cake (use a mix). Etc., Etc. Peg Bracken did it first and, on the whole, better.
