Book Description Academy Library Guild, Fresno, CA, 1952. Cloth. Condition: Very Good. Hernando Villa (illustrator). This book is the first and only authentic record of Spanish California cookery, revealing many secrets and menus of the period handed down through five generations of the author's illustrious Spanish ancestors who first trod the soil with Padre Junipero Serra. This work is a unique historical record by Ana Begue Packman, a direct descendant of Juan Francisco Reyes, an early alcade of Los Angeles. The author begins by describing early California domestic life, native fruits and vegetables, and the use of the outdoor kitchen. Many colonial recipes are provided with English subtitles and numerous practical explanations of the sources, ingredients, and presentation of the food. This work offers a rare opportunity to glean cookery secrets--not only for the preparation of good food--but also to learn about the roots of a culture now taken for granted in California and the West. Included are illustrations, a section on traditions and customs of hospitality, a glossary of terms, and an index. This HARDCOVER copy is clean and solid. Seller Inventory # 013291
