Online Auction Description

This edition of The Frugal Gourmet Cooks American was published in New York by William Morrow and Company, Inc., 1987

Companion volume to the best-selling Frugal Gourmet cook books and a television series in the late 1980s.


As Jeff Smith points out, our ancestors were frugal. Some by choice, some by necessity. Being frugal, not squandering one's resources, was generally considered a virtue, epecially in the kitchen. The “thrifty housewife” was admired and her frugality was praised. Nowadays we may refer to it as being economical, but it still means not being wasteful, making the most of what you have on hand.


Being frugal is not the same as being stingy and the frugal cook can produce gourmet dishes. Examples are shown by region – New England, Southern Cooking, sections like The Native Americans, The Heartland and so on. There are also categories like American Breakfasts, Edible Comforts, and Soul!

More than just a routine collection of regional dishes... many of your favorites are here, too.

Just think – you can sample regional specialties like Red Beans and Rice without the hassle of a flight to New Orleans. Boston Brown Bread without having to navigate the traffic near Harvard Square. Or Schnitz und Knepp (and if you don't know what that is, you can find out!)

Want a recipe for salmon jerky? Look no further than page 71.

Graduate School Pot Roast? Check out the recipe on page 351

You'll even find George Washington's Favorite Cream of Peanut Soup on page 108

How about a shot of 19-Alarm Chili..!

Maybe ending up with Shoofly Pie (p.138)


Size 9 1/2" x 6 1/4" hard bound

Original price: $27.95

477 pages, including index and black and white drawings. (Others claim to find 569 pages but I don't see them anywhere.)

Dust jacket in very good condition

Fabric on spine shows a little fading, otherwise the cover is unmarked.

Binding separating slightly toward the back

Coffee (?) stain on the fore edge

An occasional word has been highlighted in yellow - fewer than a dozen


Original owner of this book was a talented self-taught painter and you'll see the signature she used on her paintings on the half-title of this book.

In the 1940s, she was Geoffrey Beene's favorite fitting model at Milmont Gowns where he started designing when he first came to New York. She soon became one of the top runway models in New York, known professionally as “Eloise”, with a career that extended through the 1950s. So, you see, she didn't have much time to cook until later, when books like this came out.
