Vintage cookery books

I love reading cookery books; not necessarily using them for recipes, but jsut reading them. I like all eras, and found these two yesterday at the tip/recycling centre. Teh covers just evoke their era, the 70s, when I was growing up. I got the German one as OH's mother was German, so I might have a go at some things in there. Teh other one, the baking one, is American, with more bread recipes than youc an shake a stick at LOL
The one from here I want to try first is Beatrice Trum Hunter's* famous no-knead wholewheat bread - wonder if it's like Doris Grant's famous recipe (which I ahven't tried either)? Will report back, successful or otherwise.

* fabulous name!

  1. I love old recipe books, I could look through them for hours! Did you try the bread? I wouldn't mind the recipe, if you don't mind.
