speaking of cookbooks

An intersting area of cookbooks and recipes is those that were and are put out by food manufacturing companies. We have this little gem at home Recipes with Catsup! It is a little 8 page pamphlet with gems like the cover shot above, called Fabulous Aspic. makes me crack up every time I look at it. totally not appetizing in this day and age, but what a cover.

other hightlights are the Dazzle Dip, and the Sensational Chicken. lots of catsup of course, and plenty of other processed food ingredients.

These little treasures are quite charming. They capture a time and place in american culture. I am on the look out for more. If you know any good sources-- let me know.
