From the Foreword: “Food has always played a vital role in the life of a nation. But never before in the history of our country has its wise use been more important than it is at present, since we must feed our Army all over the world and our civilian population, and help to feed our allies. While there is enough food to provide good nutrition for everyone here at home, not all foods will be available in the quantities to which we have been accustomed to having them. The scarcest foods are rationed … But even with rationing it is not always possible to obtain foods for which stamps are available. Because of this and the uncertainties in the supplies of some unrationed foods, the person responsible for meal planning must know the substitutions that can be made and still provide interesting and attractive meals that will protect the health of the family. This means using the same foods in a variety of ways, using leftovers, and cooking foods so that all of their original value will be preserved. The recipes and suggestions in this book are intended to help the homemaker with this important task”. Stapled Wraps. (#800) $75.00
