" "How fast can a gourmet be?" muses Poppy Cannon, world-renowned for her shortcuts in fine cooking. And in this, her tenth cookbook, proceeds to prove that any woman living (even a novice cook) can achieve a beautifully prepared, utterly delicious meal for her family or guests in a short adventurous thirty minutes or less!
We say "adventurous": this does not apply to the preparation of cooking of Miss Cannon's recipes, but rather to the delightfully different taste sensations you will encounter throughout the pages of The Fast Gourmet Cookbook, in which this High Priestess of the Practical has adapted recipes from the far corners of the globe for the rushed, modern day needs of women-on-the-go.
Imagine preparing a meatloaf, from start to finish, in 28 minutes! Or making homemade bread and butter in a blender. Live it up with an elegant hamburger from New York's famous "21" Club recipe - or surprise your family with Queen Jinga's Dish, an exotic blending of chicken, spices and peanut butter!
In addition to sections on beef, chicken, pork, veal and miscellaneous recipes, Miss Cannon gives you generous instructions for Sunday brunches, buffets, and holiday menus. Her chapter on Instant Elegance is a classic on easy entertaining geared to all good little hostesses who have labored long and hard over that special occasion, only to wonder if the work was really worth the effort! Miss Cannon gives shortcuts, suggests unusual touches and encourages the woman without a maid to be a completely delightful, unflurried hostess.
The Fast Gourmet Cookbook will, we predict, be the most reached-for, thumbed-through, used cookbook you, gentle wife-mother-career girl and, yes, even bachelor, have ever found. Good reading, good tasting, successful entertaining, and bon appetit to you! "
