Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Oriental "Show-You" Recipes


The light blue front panel of the two-fold, six-panel leaflet features text reading Oriental "Show-You" Recipes, then lower on the panel in a space for the dealer, Karl C. Bogart, In Arcade Market, ADams 3622, Dayton, Ohio. Between the two sections of text is a color illustration of four cans and one bottle of Oriental Show-You products. The background behind the title text features three yellow oriental lanterns hanging from two limbs of a tree with orange leaves. The back panel is one of three devoted to recipes (and the back panel in particular to salad recipes). The other two recipe panels focus more on main dishes. Two additional inside panels spotlight products and their healthful nature. Two black and white illustrations accompany the text. Near the bottom of the back panel, in red ink, is text reading Write For 24 Page Recipe Book - Free.
