Illustrated with beautiful vintage photographs, this nostalgic tribute is guaranteed to fill hearts and bellies with a hankering for a real home-cooked meal.Reviews"Most of all, I love that this book captures the real meat of life, not just its gravy."-Lily Binns, Saveur"Sometimes recipes produce more than a good meal; they bring history to life.
