This cookbook was produced in the early 60s, by the Spice Islands home economics staff. While it is a fine cookbook for its day, the recipes use many canned goods and techniques which are out-dated for today's cook. We now have access to very fresh produce and spices, also, a better understanding of other culture's cuisines. I did not try any of the recipes, but from reading many of them I am sure they would produce good meals.

This was for many years a standard. My copy is filled with marginal notes and spatters of food (probably not good for resale). I don't use it much any more, but there are still classic recipes here that I return to on occasion. It shows its age in some of the cooking methods and ingredients.
