Be Sure to Get a Vintage Edition
on 16 June 2012
All the ideas here for cooking in a bedsitter are ingenious. These ideas apply to any situation where you need to eat with minimum time and fuss, and with limited cooking resources. But the recipes are completely different between my 1963 edition and my 1991 edition. The 1991 edition was badly affected by the ill-informed fad for "low-cholesterol" eating, with traditional recipes denatured. The 1963 edition, by contrast, contains the original healthy traditional recipes using butter and cream and bacon and other tasty ingredients, the style to which we are now returning as our nutritional information improves.
