Cooking is one of the really creative arts, and a deeply satisfying, deeply personal one, since it is done for the ones we love. (From the Introduction to Cooking) 

{HISTORY}

A trusted authority on women's issues and interests since 1873, McCall's Magazine was always on the forefront of trends that appealed to American women whether it be cooking, household tips, fashion or beauty. With 100 years of expertise, refinement, and understanding of their readerships needs and wants, they knew that American women during the 1960's were especially interested in glamour, travel and entertaining but not everyone was a skilled cook in the kitchen or had the luxury of time and budget to travel the world.

The editors at McCall's set out to write a cookbook for those women in mind... the novice cook, the person who needed instruction from the very beginning, who had the dreams and desires to build a repertoire of delicious, nutritious meals for herself, her family and her friends. And they set out to write a book for the adventurer - the home cook who wanted to experience the foods of other cultures and learn about the art of entertaining so that she too could become a more worldly figure through food. Covering every aspect of cooking from equipment to techniques, recipes to nutrition, this 786 page cookbook contains not only a wealth of information but also a wealth of recipes that run the gamut from breakfast to dinner and everything in between.

{CONDITION}

In well loved condition, this book was previously a great helper in the kitchen. Overall it is in great shape but the inside cover boards at one point previously contained tape (possibly to hold a book cover in place) which was removed and has removed part of the decorated end papers. There are few random cooking stains on a few pages - but 96% of the pages are spot-free. There are also splatter marks on the paper side of the spine and some very minor rub marks on the front and back cover. Please see all photos for condition.

{SIZE}

Measures 7.5" inches (width) x 9.5" inches (length) x 2" (depth)

{WHY IT'S ESPECIALLY MARVELOUS}

A really cool and in-depth look inside the culinary mind and heart of the mid-century woman, McCall's cookbook showcases the types of food that were trendy during the decade for a variety of women from single gals to newlyweds, career women to stay-at-homers.
