The Melting Pot Cookbook #Giveaway - 2 Winners

The Melting Pot Cookbook by Belle Serbin Fields

About The Book:
The best recipes collected over the years by a 100 year old Jewish Grandmother who considers entertaining a competitive sport. Her recipes not only taste good, but they have to look good, too. Belle's recipes are practical and unusual, and her ingredients are everyday items found in every kitchen. Although the book is written by a Jewish grandmother, this is not a kosher or even strictly Jewish cookbook. There are Chinese, Italian, German, Danish, and other nationalities represented among the recipes. Another lure to the book are the interesting tales of where and how she found many of the recipes, and events where she has used them. Finally, there are ideas of recipes that can be combined to present an unusual visual effect, like her 7 layer Jello mold table centerpiece, or her combination salad mold appetizer. Belle is a kitchen artist as well as a great cook and baker.

My Thoughts:
This was a fun read for me. I like the recipes, and love to try new ones, and there are some doozies in this cookbook! I also really liked to learn about where Grandma Belle got the recipes and how she used them! Those tidbits are fun to know!
