Colonel Halstead C. Fowler collected their most cherished recipes." One section consists of Chinese dishes, taught to an American officer by a Chinese mestizo chef; other recipes are Filipino, French, British, Italian, Javanese, Mexican, Polish, and American. Wherever contributors' names are known, brief biographies are supplied, and a number of military anecdotes are also included.

Not in Brown, Culinary Americana. Publisher's red cloth, in original dust jacket; dust jacket showing small signs of onetime dampness, price-clipped and taped (some time ago) into Mylar wrapper, with spine sunned and extremities worn, volume extremities slightly rubbed. Front free endpaper with small annotation darkly inked out; back pastedown with bookseller's small ticket. Pages gently and evenly age-toned with scattered small checkmarks by some recipes, otherwise clean. => A solid copy of an interesting, even touching collection.  (41353)   Please RESHELVE This.
