Cookbook Score!!!!

Here in Forest Park there are many nice antique stores along Madison Street. I like to take a walk and pop in to see what they have and on a recent walk, found a major sale on cookbooks. Score! All perfect condition, first edition. I used to spend hours as a kid pouring over my mom's 1960's and 70"s cookbooks. Great illustrations, great memories.

The Savor of the Sea, complete seafood cookbook, 1966

Long Island Seafood Cookbook, 1971, reproduction of 1939 cookbook

The Language of Cookery 1968

Chafing Dish Possibilities, Fannie Merritt Farmer 1898. Am totally in love with Fannie, she taught me cooking and am very proud to have this first edition in my home!
