Durkee’s Salad Dressing Brochure with Recipe Calendar, 1930: New Recipes for Durkee’s Delicious Dishes. Booklet copyrighted in 1930 by Durkee Famous Foods, Inc. and prepared by the makers of Gauntlet Brand Condiments, Seasonings and Spices since 1850. Recipes by Good Housekeeping Institute and Miss Bertha M. Becker, New York. Sixteen page booklet. Every two-page section has two months of the 1930 calendar (plus two additional pages with January and February of 1931) with three salad recipes plus lovely lithographs. The last two pages of the booklet has “Cookery Terms Defined” plus “Measurements Used in Cookery.”
This is a difficult-to-find cook booklet. Right now, there are no other copies available on the Internet. In is quite unusual in its layout and use of the calendar. This copy is in good vintage condition. The hinge/fold on the front and back has been mended with clear librarian’s tape. The back two pages have lots of spots. There’s a 1″ tear at the bottom of the back cover page. The other pages are mostly clean and clear.
Don’t you love it that they credited Miss Bertha M. Becker, New York?
