Funk & Wagnalls BCE, copyright 1968. Hard Cover, brown cloth binding with gold lettering and decoration on cover and spine measuring 9 1/4 in. x 6 3/8 in. with 325 pages.

Because chocolate is such a universal favorite no introduction to the pleasures of the table that are brought by chocolate need be given here. Not many cooks, however, take full advantage of the possibilities offered by chocolate, and The Big Chocolate Cookbook intends to remedy that situation immediately.

You will find in these pages not only the most appealing array of desserts— cakes pies. cookies, torten, angel food and sponge cakes. puddings, frozen and gelatin desserts—plus candy, beverages, and cake icings and frostings but also a very unusual chapter that gives several recipes for using chocolate with poultry in the Latin American manner. In the more conventional sections of the book the same imagination and flair for the unusual is combined with practicality by Gertrude Parke to bring new delights to the average cook's repertoire of sure-fire dishes.

A special chapter on the use of packaged mixes for quick tricks, all using chocolate to give them verve and distinction, will please busy cooks, and even those who are usually more leisurely will find this section useful when unexpected company arrives.

Even pancakes, waffles,and doughnuts can make good use of chocolate on occasion. Fruits with chocolate, cream puffs, eclairs and other small pastries, and sauces and syrups round out this collection and show that it lives up to its title, The Big Chocolate Cookbook.

The dustjacket has some spotting and edge tears. The page edges and rear end pages have some minor spotting. No inscriptions, not an ex library. The cover and pages are intact and in good condition.
