WW II-era promotional cook book advertising Swift's meats, published under the auspices of Martha Logan, the host of "Swift & Company's Martha Logan Cooking Show" — although there was actually an entire team of home economists operating under the trade name "Martha Logan," and indeed the preface makes extensive use of "we" rather than "I."
The recipes here are grouped by type of meat, with an index at the back organized by cooking length so that time-crunched cooks can select a menu based on the amount of time available; among the dishes are Mexican flank steak (cooked with beans and chili powder) and tamale pie. Black and white photographs illustrate the text, with a two-page, color-printed spread displaying various Swift products. A leaflet on "tempting lunch box meals for war workers . . . for school children" is laid in.
Not in Brown, Culinary Americana. Publisher's red, white, and blue–printed spiral-bound wrappers; very slight age-toning (cover now cream) and shelfwear, overall in excellent condition. (Inventory #: 36183)
