New Settlement Cook Book, 1954, Revised and Enlarged Thirty-first Edition, Excellent Condition: The tried-and-true recipes of the first Settlement Cook Book, first published in 1901, with a revised format, with additional recipes and modern methods.

This cookbook was published in 1954 by Simon and Schuster, New York. It is from the first printing of the thirty-first edition. Hard cover book with no dust jacket. 676 pages. The cover has darkened a bit, and it has a stain in the lower right corner. The pages are uniformly and lightly tanned. The hinges and binding are perfect. The cookbook is in nearly mint condition.
At VintageCookbook.com 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.
