There are those of us who love to cook and those of us who have to cook. But even the most unskillful cook can in most cases achieve wonders if he has good recipes. Richard T. Hougen

{HISTORY}

Richard Hougen was the manager of the Boone Tavern Hotel in Berea, Kentucky for over 35 years. Graduating from Cornell University's Hotel Administration College in the 1930's, gave him just the right training to recognize talented staff and to exude hospitable service. First testing his skills in the food industry in Chicago, he moved to Berea, Kentucky to become managing director of the Boone Tavern Hotel in the 1940's, and stayed, a delightful fixture of the place, for more than three decades.

During that time Ricahrd published several cookbooks. This one, Look No Further was originally ipublished n 1951 and was so popular it went through several reprints. This is the 1955 edition. It contains 190 recipes that were favorite menu items in Boone Tavern, a hotspot for travelers to Kentucky as well as guests, students and faculty of Berea College on whose campus the hotel was situated. 

Made up of Southern favorites including recipes from Richard's own family cookbooks, these dishes in Look No Further offer an array of regional fare that is comprised of fresh, whole ingredients and simple steps.
