A fellow teacher found these this summer and was kind to think of me.  A nice pair of 1943 cooking manuals and what appears to be a period cook's cap!  Cap is marked as shown. If anyone else has cooking-related items, please feel free to share!

Reminds me of a story Dad liked to tell about being stationed at Fort McClellan in 1940/41. The bakers were having trouble with bugs getting into the flour supply, resulting in bread with little black things baked in. Since they couldn't keep the bugs out, the solution was throw raisins into the dough.

Thanks for the comments!  Pretty fun set of items.  I'm particularly enjoying the recipes and the copious amounts of lard contained within.

Try using that much lard in things today, in today's culture I'm sure it wouldn't fly.

My wife uses lard in home made piece crust, you can't beat it.

Is/ used to be an Inn in Burnsville NC that made breads, cakes with lard and fried chicken in it. So good, not bad once or twice a year. Have to look and see if still have WWI cooks manual?

Mikie, those cooks were way ahead of their time...... eating bugs is becoming very fashionable these days  ;)
