Detroit Times Cook Book of Vivette Recipes, 1935, Nearly As-If-New Condition:  I almost never say “rare” when describing a cookbook, but I will when describing this cookbook.  I can’t find any other copies available on the Internet.  Nearly mint condition cookbook published by the Detroit Times in 1935.  It is unusual because it is a loose leaf cookbook housed in a red metal box.  The box is in nearly mint condition, with just a few flakes of red paint missing along some edges.  The recipes are all by the Detroit Times’ cooking columnist, Vivette, the “much-praised former housekeeper for the Edsel Fords.”  The recipes are divided by tabbed divider pages.  The pages are nearly all clean and clear.  Just a few have very minor tiny spots.  The tabs are in excellent vintage condition, with some very slight wear.

The chapters include: Bread-Cookies-Doughnuts; Meat-Poultry-Soups; Desserts-Candy-Preservation; Mixed Dishes and Foreign Cookery; Salads-Cocktails-Hors D’Oeuvre; Eggs-Cheese-Fish; and Cake-Pie.  Inserted into the cookbook and tucked into the back are many recipes cut from newspapers and magazines and scribbled on pieces of paper.  We’ll send them along.
