(California - San Francisco) McLaren, L.L. The Pan-Pacific Cook-Book: Savory Bits from the World’s Fair.

Illus. with charming drawings. Olive cloth, pictorial cover label. First Edition. San Francisco: Blair-Murdock, 1915.

Published in conjunction with San Francisco’s Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915, with recipes for world foods like chile rellenos con queso, Chinese noodles baked, dhal, eggplant al forno, etc. The Exposition was crucial in bringing international cuisines never before sampled by San Franciscans, to their doorstep. Chipping to spine ends and rubbing to extremities; front free endpaper lacking, still very good.
