(California – Carmel) Pirenne, Jeanne. For the Gourmets in Carmel.

Pictorial dark blue wrappers. Second Edition. Carmel: c.1925.

Pirenne wrote another book of French recipes in 1925, thus my dating. A charming little self-published book of French recipes for the gourmets of Carmel: croquettes de veau ou de volaille, oiseaux sans tete, cotelettes de porc a la vinaigrette, crepes Suzette, etc. Section in rear is a story about a Frenchman who visited Carmel. Mild insect damage to wrappers; offset to two pages from newspaper clipping, else about very good.
