I stopped by the library on my way home and I always have to stop by the cook books. It would take me 30 years to go through each one properly, but I do enjoy reading them. This one, The Fireside Cook Book by James Beard especailly got my attention because it has oodles of vintage illustrations. I have a large collection of vintage cook books that I have kept just for their inspiring and simple line drawings. This book was first published in 1949.
