Additional Details

Description: The Detroit Woman's Exchange Recipes cookbook comprises a selection from many hundreds to of recipes in the files of the Woman's Exchange, choosing those for which the Exchange was best known and which, through the years, were always in the most demand. Many of the recipes in this cookbook were printed in a series of articles which appeared in The Detroit News, and are reprinted here. Aside form these, however, more than 150 other recipes, including some of the most highly prized in the entire collection, have been added to make the present volume. 

Stella V. Hough, manager of the Woman's Exchange during its last 33 years of life, points out that this is not a cookbook in the general sense of the term. It is, however, a book about cooking -- not cooking in general, but cooking of a certain rather well-defined type. It is the type that derives largely from America's age of elegance, an age of gracious living -- the nineties and several decades thereafter. It is very largely the type of food served on social occasions "by people of taste and means in pretty much any part of this country. 

While many of the menus included in this vintage cookbook were served at social functions of grace and elegance at the beginning of the century, they are ageless in their essential goodness and know no barriers of changing fashion.
