Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Tested Recipes Delicious Baked Stuff Made With Columbus Margarine


The front panel of this three-fold, eight-panel leaflet features text reading Tested Recipes Delicious Baked Stuffs Made With Columbus Margarine. A color drawing is included of a young boy wearing a shirt, tie and sweater, and eating a piece of cake. A blue frame is around the edges of the panel. The back panel features text under the heading, For Housewives, that promotes the use of Columbus Margarine over lard (quality issue) or butter (expense issue). Beneath the promotional text is the company name, Capital City Dairy Co., Columbus, Ohio. Then beneath that is an italicized notation, For Sale By. Stamped onto the bottom of the panel is the name H.E. Siegfrid, 21 Belvidere St., Nazareth, PA, 1BS Oleomargarine. The other six panels of the leaflet feature recipes for cakes, cookies, soups, candies, and three fish dishes. Color illustrations accompany some recipes.
