Description: Amy Vanderbilt, the nation's foremost etiquette authority, has gathered favorite mouth-watering recipes from her files and compiled them in a big, general cookbook, appealing and useful to both the experienced and the beginner cook. Recipes range from the simplest appetizer for an informal family meal to an impressive dessert for a gala company dinner. Standard favorites such as a Sunday Supper Scrambled Eggs and The Boys' Do-It-Yourself Lunch are included, along with exotic recipes like the delectable Sachertorte from the Hotel Sacher in Vienna.
Many of these easy-to-follow recipes are supplemented by pertinent comments by the author on serving or completing the menu with a zesty salad or a taste-appealing dessert.
Although Miss Vanderbilt believes that cooking is an art, she also believes that the wise modern woman takes advantage of up-to-date conveniences -- frozen and packaged delicacies -- and includes tips on where and how to use such short cuts.
With a complete range of menus and cooking information, as well as Amy Vanderbilt's personal hints and comments, this is one cookbook that is both a useful and an entertaining kitchen companion for the modern woman.
