1976 Better Homes & Gardens New Cook Book
1970s Classic Cookbook

"From cover to cover this Better Homes & Gardens New Cook Book was written with you in mind. Whether you're an experienced cook or a newcomer to the world of cooking three meals a day, we want it to be your best friend in the kitchen."

So begins the intro to this vintage cookbook. Compiled by the editors of BH&G magazine & published in 1976, this big book is an asset to any kitchen. Here are hundreds of the best recipes, selected from the thousands that appeared in the magazine ~ all tested in the BH&G Test Kitchen. From simple, classic meals to worldwide cuisine. A staple in American kitchens for decades.

The format is great ~ contained in a nice ringed binder, the 20 tabbed chapters are full of delicious recipes and practical advice. The recipe selection is diverse, from Appetizers to Desserts & Beverages (with extra chapters on Meal Planning & Nutrition & Table Settings). The book is perfect for the novice or experienced cook, and has a 60s-70s perspective in terms of food selections and pairings. The ingredients are fairly basic...not too many "use only once" purchases. This 400 page book is clear & well thought out & very easy to work with.

This 10" X 8.25" X 2" edition is in very good condition with the only flaw being some damage to the bright red & white check washable cover ~ the spine is squashed in one spot & there is some light abrasion tearing on the back (see pic 4). But that's it. The inside of the book is clean clean ~ no writing, stains, tears, or age-toning. The tabs are in wonderful shape and the pages solidly holding to the binder rings. Beautiful glossy pages with lots of color photos.

All in all, a very nice edtion of this classic cookbook & a great look into midcentury cooking :)
