Title of Vintage Cookbook/Cook Book/Cooking Recipes Book :   Vintage 1969 Southwest Cookery, Or, At Home On the Range


***”The savory, colorful cooking of the Southwest presented for the first time with verve and wit by a talented chronicler of the area”


Dust Jacket Excerpt(s): “The food of the Southwest United States is as colorful as the land itself - a varied and sophisticated cuisine that blends Mexican, Spanish, French (both Canadian and New Orleans), even German (old-fashioned German Potato Salad flavored with chile is not to be missed). And her, a well-known chronicler of the land - novelist and historian Richard Wormser - presents the famous (Arroz Con Pollo) and lesser-known (Drunken Horse Beans) recipes of the Southwest. All authentic and all delicious, they cover the whole range - from appetizers to desserts including the fried beans, the tacos, tortillas and tamales that are the heart of Southwest cooking. Witty, sparkling with colorful anecdotes about the land and its people, this is a cookbook for every taste - mild, moderate, hot - abounding in ideas to brighten every meal with ‘something different.’”
