Vintage books

I decided to bite the bullet and purchase this 1958 copy of "Freezing Foods at Home," because, you know, I might want to educate myself on the art of freezing foods...and I guess it won't look too shabby on my cookbook shelf, either.

I am a sucker for pretty cover art.

Other personal favorites include Ginette Mathiot's I Know How to Cook and For the Love of Salad by Jeanelle Mitchell.

Do you all have any vintage cookbooks in your collection that you might recommend?

  1. I don't know of any--but my husband is a chef who loves antiques. A similar book might be a great little surprise for him! It's so adorable! Thanks for the idea!

  2. It's not quite a cookbook, but "Grandma's Natural Remedies" by Brenda Evans is SO cute both on the cover and in the contents.
