no preview available


The front cover of the pamphlet features text that reads From Coast To Coast... Good Food Makes Friends, then near the bottom of the cover, Favorite Food For All The Land Prepared By Procter & Gamble Research Bakery And Kitchens, Makers Of Primex And Sweetex. Primex is noted For Frying And Shortening, while Sweetex is noted from The High-Ratio Shortening. A brown, yellow and white drawing of the North American continent makes up a major portion of the cover, with figures of a filmmaker, logger, cowboy and businessman eyeing fruits and vegetables in the center of the continent. A signature in blue ink on the cover reads Marjorie Kintz. The white back cover is blank. The inside front cover includes a message labeled Important!... Save Fat! - More Important Than Ever Before! followed by a list of conservation ideas available in a series of wartime information bulletins. Inside pages include recipes and directions for foods that use the company's products. A few tables and formulas appear, too, along with charts that, for example, include pan sizes, scaling weights and baking temperatures.
