KIRKUS REVIEW

A unique addition to a series that is essential to every library, this takes the hurdle of rapid dating admirably by establishing basic principles that will be as sound ten years from now as they are today. Trade names are studiously avoided; the balance is towards the day-in-day-out kind of food shopping rather than the stunty things or the latest wrinkle, although frozen foods are assumed as here to stay, and the introduction of gourmet specialities something every housewife should know about. From selection of the store with which to deal- and the etiquette and efficiency of using what that store affords, the authors go on to the whys and whats of food shopping, through the list of offerings:- meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy products, vegetables, foods to store, fruits, grain foods, sweetening, fats, small items, ""quickies"". They discuss analysis of bargains, how to make and use a check list, how-in the main- to be a good housekeeper.
