2 Easy Gourmet Dishes, The Amy Vanderbilt Success Program for Women
Adams, Charlotte Garden City, New York Nelson Doubleday Inc. 1966 Soft cover Very Good Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Frank Lacano 
; Stapled wraps, 72 pages; Color photographs and illustrations; Introduction by Amy Vanderbilt; Pages are tight with no internal markings save for four tiny marks inside front cover and light (small) mark to head of textblock; All Pages are securely attached; Bright pictorial cover with no tears and modest shelf and edge wear including tiny amount of light rubbing and three marks; A nice solid copy; . (How does one delight the gourmet taste, which is to say one whose products delight the gourmet taste? First is to judge whether a recipe is accurate or not, and of course after you master a dish you can begin to add your own touches. Keep in mind that if you never experiment, or use your own imagination you'll miss a lot of the creative joy which cooking brings. Having said that, another absolute must for gourmet cooks is to achieve judgment and knowledge of what foods go well with other foods, for instance if your entree is one with a gloriously rich sauce, you will perhaps start the meal with a clear soup and end it with fruit. And if you wish to serve a rich dessert, you will work back to the roast or broiled meat, with perhaps a salad for the first course. This book brings you a tiny sampling of the infinite variety available for recipes, and this will eventually lead you to the greatest pleasure of all, inventing your own dishes and variations on the inventions of others. Listed contents are: Appetizers, Soups, Fish and Seafood, Poultry, Meat, Vegetables, Salads, Sauces and Dressings, Breads, and Desserts. Besides the high-quality recipes included, you'll also enjoy the menu selections at the back which are: Luncheon Menus: Deviled Crab, Cucumber-Grapefruit Aspic, Baking Powder Biscuits, Honeydew Melon Demitasse; Asparagus a la Milanese, Peas with Tiny Onions, Hot Corn Muffins, Fresh Summer Fruit Salad, Fresh Orange Fruit Salad Dressing, Demitasse; Croque Monsieur, Chilian Salad, Grasshopper Pie, Demitasse; Chinese Cold Beef, Roquefort Cheese Ring, Norwegian Flat Bread, Fresh Strawberries on Stems with Powdered Sugar, Demitasse; And some of the dinner Menus are: Pate de Volaille, Toast Points, Filet of Sole Veronique, Dry White Wine, Buttered Green Peas, Crisp French Fried Potatoes, Fresh Blueberries and Lemon Ice, Demitasse; Consomme Bellevue, Supreme de Volaille Periguex, Rose Wine, Braised Endive, Buttered Green Noodles, Hard Rolls, Fresh Fruits with Kirsch, Demitasse; Cold Artichokes Vinaigrette, Duck a l'Orange, Dry Red Wine, Wild Rice, Frenched Green Beans, Pears with Bel Paese Cheese, Demitasse; Onion Tart, Cold Curried Chicken, Beer, Major Grey's Chutney, Cold Asparagus Vinaigrette, Hot French Bread, Rice Cake with Candied Fruits, Demitasse; Cold Creme Senegalese, Portuguese Pork with Clams, Rose Wine, Buttered Broccoli, Hot Arabic Bread, Pot de Creme, Demitasse and more.

Though capturing scenic sand in glass is modern, sand as an art medium has a long distinguished history, for example, Indians of the American Southwest, as well as desert tribes throughout the world have used sand as creative expressions since ancient times. Yet, Scenic Sand has a contemporary appeal that fits in with today's nature motifs, and is 3-dimensional. This book offers a variety of Scenic Sand Art and Sand Painting projects, with each project graded as easy, intermediate, or advanced. Many projects combine sand art with other natural materials such as sea shells and plants, and some feature sand art is alone for its own sake. There's a special section on Indian Sandpainting as well.)
