Got to tell you that as a cook both professionally and as an avocation, I'm a fair critic of cookbooks (see mine COOKING WILD & WONDERFUL on ) and this is a great one. Turn the humble potato into something fit for royalty with this great cookbook!
Oh boy! Let me attem. I can smell them baking in the oven now. And this book has all the ways you can prepare a 1945 style white potato, from potato patties to pancakes, to French fries, to potato chips, to variations on the potato dumpling, right down to potato candy with chocolate, coconut and peanut butter. The only thing I missed was a few mouth-watering photos.You may want to check out Wilma's Vintage cookie, cake, pie recipes Vintage Recipes: Vintage Recipes from 1917 Cookies, Cakes, & Pies, Oh My!
For most holidays, I opt to share a vintage recipe with the family. Sometimes a dessert from Martha Washington's cookbook, other times a veggie dish from the Civil War. Clearly, I couldn't let this book go without picking up a copy. And, also clearly - my family will be having a post-World War II potato experience at the next holiday dinner! The book contains great takes on classic dishes such as mashed and scalloped potatoes, but it also had several types of potato dishes I'd never heard of like Potato Candy and Stewed Potatoes. I have to say, though, the one I'm most looking forward to trying is the Potato Pancake. In our family the best potato pancakes were made by an elderly relative who passed away without telling anyone how she made them - so I'm hoping one of these three versions will come close to hers. Highly recommended.
I will readily admit to being a "meat & potatoes' kind of guy. I love potatoes and i love Vintage Recipes: Vintage Potato Recipes from 1945 - 46 Ways to Prepare Potatoes. I always wanted a book on just potato recipes and wondered why no one ever wrote one. Not anymore; this book has a bunch of recipes that I can't wait to try.
These recipes remind me of my mother, when she used to cook for me. Wilma does a great job of laying out just about every way you could think of to make potatoes. I showed several to my wife and asked her if we could try them. I'm looking forward to supper tonight.
How can potatoes be evil when there are so many yummy recipes for them? When potato recipes call for real milk and butter I know I am going to like the outcome. Break out of the baked and mashed rut with one of the many (46) different recipes in this handy book.
My family has always loved potatoes and I like to find new and interesting recipes to try out. There are some very good old fashioned recipes in Wilma Sossaman's book. There are recipes for scalloped potatoes, dumplings, hash browns, and even french fries. The recipe for potato candy is there too! Very good reference for family favorite recipes. I know I will be using this book a lot.
