(Guam) Alice Maxwell. Recipes of Guam: The Fandango, The Fiesta, The Coconut Tree.


Illus. with a map of Guam, as well as with drawings of the island and coconut palms and grinders. Pictorial boards. First Edition. [Agana, Guam: 1954].

Much more than just recipes, this is a fascinating book about the foods of Guam, with a guide to local customs and occasions (the Fandango and the fiesta), instructions on opening coconuts, vegetables and fruits grown on Guam, the Guamanian way of using seven basic foods, and a glossary of Guamanian words and their pronunciation. Very good and bright.
