(California - Los Angeles) Kate Crutcher Players. “What’s Cookin.”


232 pp. Illus. with drawings. Gilt-lettered green cloth. First Edition. [Los Angeles: Murray & Gee, 1944].

Replete with ads for Los Angeles businesses. The Kate Crutcher Players were comprised of workers at the Children’s Hospital at 155 S. Western Ave. in Los Angeles, and they compiled this cookbook to benefit the Kenny Ward for Infantile Paralysis there. There are 10 pages of alcoholic cocktails, as well as recipes for wild game and stuffings, eggs, fish, souffles, desserts, etc. Bookplate of the LAPL to front pastedown. Very good.
