Review

Hahahaa this book is amusing, upsetting, interesting, astonishing and informative. Written with  a smirk and a wink this book chronicles the misadventures of American cuisine from the so called "Golden Age of Salt and Starch" these "recipes" are gleaned from ads for food companies wherein nothing that is produced by these recipes would be considered appetizing, or food really. Some personal fav's page 23, (what IS that?!!?)page 43 (is that meat or jello?!?!)  page 73 (that's not salmon, that's obviously brains). More a skimmer than a reader but it will have you howling with laughter and horror!
