(California) Taylor, Zada & Betty Herman. A Time for Cooking.


Illus. with decorations by James Armstrong. Jacket. First Edition. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1963.

Zada Taylor was “well known among California librarians,” back at a time when librarians could be famous. Betty’s chicken salad, anchovy and parsley dressing, celery Victor, Consuelo’s tomato pudding, and other California-influenced dishes. Very good.
