Bon Appetit: Secrets From Shanghai Kitchens

1940. Hardcover. 7.5"x5". The third impression of the cookbook compiled by Lady Maze and Mrs V.G. Bowen in Shanghai in 1940. From the preface: 'This collection of recipes has been compiled with the aim of benefiting British war funds. There is probably no more cosmopolitan city in the world than Shanghai, and no place that has a more justly earned reputation for hospitality. It, therefore, seemed to us that we had a unique opportunity of making a collection of recipes of international dishes - provided always that our many friends and sympathisers could be prevailed upon to yield up their culinary secrets for a national cause.' With charming illustrations, and a few recipes printed with Chinese translation on the facing page. Discoloration and wear to the spine, including a small crescent void on the upper edge (see photo). Some foxing, particularly to the endpapers and title page. Previous owner's gift inscription. Good. Item #2022-M180

Price: $79.95
