Morrison Wood wrote the popular weekly food column, âFor Men Only!â, for the Chicago Tribune. The recipes in the book appeared first in newspapers. (It was also read by women!)
âWith a Jug of Wineâ was published in 1949, bringing new concepts of food preparation to American cooks well before Julia Child's books on French cooking.
Home cooking of the post World War II period was, well... uninspired, monotonous, even. Mr Wood's recipe column suggested that familiar ingredients could be used to produce more adventuresome meals, especially with the judicious use of a jug of wine.
This book appeared in hard covers only and has been out of print for years.
Still today there are cooks who say it's the best cookbook they have ever owned and they've worn out more than one copy, passed it along to their children, etc.
The condition is good, considering its age. It has been used actively â the greatest compliment a book of recipes can receive!
One or two written comments appear next to recipes, such as âexcellentâ. A few tiny brown stains along fore edge that might be coffee â or red wine? The paper has that characteristic pale, creamy, not-quite-white color typical of mass-market books of that period. Dust jacket is intact if a bit ragged along the edges.
When âMore Recipes With a Jug of Wineâ appeared, it was greeted with enthusiastic comments : â...a damned good cookbook!â Another claimed success with every recipe tried: ââabsolutely NO failures. This is not the usual result with cookbooks.â
The recipes were considered pretty exotic for that period, but Mr. Wood was able to make them as simple as possible. âI don't believe any of the recipes are beyond the average man or woman who cooks, either frequently or only occasionally.â His readers agreed with him and âMore Recipes With a Jug of Wineâ joined the earlier âRecipes With a Jug of Wineâ on kitchen counters across the country. As far as I can determine, it was published without a dust jacket, only the medium-green fabric cover. This volume has no marks, no shelf rubbing, with a few pinpoint brown spots on the fore edge of some pages. The paper has preserved its original appearance over the years and the binding is tight.
When did you last prepare ZweibelkÃ¼chen?
Book is in good condition. No dust jacket. Cloth covers show a little shelf wear.
