Group Of Vintage Chinese and Oriental Cooking Recipe
for item Misc194
This group is a little hodge-podge of recipe booklets I put together - all featuring Chinese and Oriental Cooking. I'll describe them left to right - top to bottom:
(1) Secret of Oriental Cooking - Copyright 1974 by RJR Foods, Inc., better known as Chun King. The booklet is a 5 1/4" square. It has 10 pages - some pictures - others showing Chun King products. One of the recipes in this booklet is Stir-Fried Chicken Medley. The booklet has been folded at one time, but does not have deep creases.
(2) West Bend Electric Wok Booklet. This booklet was mainly written for instructions for the Wok, however, there are some nice tips on how to prepare food for cooking in a wok and how to hold your chop sticks. No recipes, but does have helpful information on cooking oriental food. The booklet measures 6x4 1/2" and has 11 pages. The booklet is in good condition.
(3) The Art and Secrets of Chinese Cookery (my favorite of the four) - Copyright 1942 by La Choy Food Products. The back inside cover has the La Choy Business Philosophy and a picture of their factory in Detroit, Michigan. The booklet includes recipes for Yet-Ca-Mein, Sub Kum Chop Suey or Chow Mein, Fried Rice and more. As you can see from the photo, the outer cover has been taped. Also the outer cover pages have pulled through at the staples and is loose from the rest of the booklet. The front paper cover has some tiny pieces missing and has some light stains. Something pink has faded onto the bottom corn of a few pages. The booklet has some really cute vintage illustrations. The booklet measures 6 1/4x4 1/8" in size and has 26 pages.
(4) The Art And Secrets of Chinese Cookery - Copyright 1959 by Beatrice Foods Company. This is another La Choy booklet. Some of the recipes include Tuna Chop Suey, Egg Foo Yong, Chinese Egg Rolls, Lobster and Chicken Cantonese, and more. The booklet measures 6x4" and has 28 pages. Overall the booklet is in good condition, however, the back half of the book has been wet at one time which has caused the pages to have a rippled look. A couple of pages had been stuck together and lifted a portion of one page. The booklet is not brittle and the rest of the pages can be easily read.
