(Oakland) Piedmont Women's Guild. Piedmont Community Melting Pot.

Illus. with vignettes, and replete with local ads. Pictorial wrappers. First Edition. Piedmont, CA: 1940's.

Ads for war bonds place this clearly in the middle of WWII, and favorite recipes from members of the Piedmont Women's Guild include maraschino cherries, my mother's ginger-bread, peach chili, Persian melon pickle, Mexican hot-pot, Ida's sponge drops, Mable Palmer's Spanish date cake, tamale pie with hominy, etc. Darkening to extremities, else very good.
