From the cover: “From the Roaring Twenties, through the depression of the Thirties, and to the austerity of the war years, Food Glorious Food celebrates the ever-popular topics of eating and drinking.
Covering the first twenty years of Good Housekeeping magazine, from its launch in 1922, through the penny-pinching days of the Thirties to the wartime rationing of 1942, the book offers a fascinating collection of articles, advertisements and recipes gleaned from the pages of the magazine.
The features and recipes illustrate the evolvement of food products, fads and ideas through two historic decades, while the advertisements provide a wonderful glimpse of the famous manufacturers of the day.
A companion volume to the best sellers Ragtime to Wartime, The Home Front and The Christmas Book, Food Glorious Food represents the very best of Good Housekeeping.”
