Pecan Rolls and Chicken Chartreuse from How It Is Done, Virginia McDonald
Pecan Rolls and Chicken Chartreuse from How It Is Done, Virginia McDonald: Two of the recipes not included in Virginia McDonald’s original cookbook, How I Cook It, 1949.
Yes, we have the cookbook. See it here: https://www.vintagecookbook.com/product/done-mcdonald-tea-room-gallatin-missouri/
How It Is Done, McDonald Tea Room, Gallatin, Missouri: Revised version of How I Cook It by Virginia McDonald, originally published in 1949 by Frank Glenn Publishing Co., Inc., Kansas City, Missouri. This version is of historical interest, because it includes an three-page essay, ostensibly written by the house after McDonald died in 1969. The house–called Maple Shade–chronicles its history, the history of the McDonald family, and tells how it became the Virginia Rowell McDonald Museum in 1973.
This booklet was probably sold in the museum. It has a paper back, plastic comb binding, and 58 pages. It is in good vintage condition. It includes some recipes that weren’t in the original book. Two of them are in the VintageCookbook.com recipe file.
