Dinner Against the Clock, 1973, Madeleine Kamman, First Printing, As-if-New



Dinner Against the Clock, 1973, Madeleine Kamman, First Printing, As-if-New:  Cookbook by Madeleine Kamman, famous for her Making of a Cook cookbooks.  Published in 1973 by Atheneum, New York.  Stated first edition, presumed first printing, no other being mentioned.  Hard boards covered in green linen.  326 pages.  As-if-new condition!  Pages clean and clear.  Binding is perfect.  Hinges are perfect.

I don’t know how this cookbook could ever go out of print.  It’s one of the most practical cookbooks I’ve ever read, and I’ve read a lot of cookbooks.  Kamman proposes dinner menus, suggests the order in which to prepare the dishes, provides recipes and techniques–all for dinners that can be prepared in 45 minutes or less.  And these recipes sound yummy!

At we try to provide you with your mother’s cookbook! I know lots of current recipe bloggers write proudly that their recipes are “not from your mother’s cookbook.” We think the recipes in your mother’s cookbook provided food that was nutritious and warm and colorful and just plain yummy! We know that just looking at the cover of your mother’s Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book makes you feel good. Holding her Betty Crocker Cookbook, or her Better Homes and Gardens, or Good Housekeeping Cookbook in your hands is better than nostalgic. And cooking some of those dishes for your children will pass on a great tradition.
