Content: This is a 1955 1st US edition of The World's Best Recipes by Marvin Small.


Dust-jacket reads:


For this once-in-a-lifetime cookbook Mar­vin Small has chosen the greatest recipes from the world's best cookbooks. To sup­plement them, he has gone to the chefs of famous restaurants and hotels all over the world for their kitchen secrets, most of which have never before appeared in book form. And, to round out this book of best recipes, he has asked celebrated personalities to give him their favorite dishes. (See the back of this jacket for some of the many recipe sources).


The book that has resulted from this is calculated to delight the heart of any gourmet and, more important, to prove an indispensable asset in any kitchen-for even the least experienced of cooks. For these fabulous recipes are so presented that their preparation is made as quick and easy as is possible in fine cooking.


No library of cookbooks is large enough to include all the cookbooks in which there are wonderful recipes. The World's Best Recipes, however, is such a library in one volume. It is a book that deserves to stand beside the basic cookbook (whether it be The Joy of Cooking, Fannie Farmer or The Settlement Cook Book-all of them among the dozens of great cookbooks from which prize dishes have been taken for this book) and pro­vide an introduction to the wide, wonder­ful world of delicious food.


Because the world's most tempting recipes have been chosen for this unique book, it will inspire many to further research and testing in a wide variety of other cookbooks. To help them find other cook­books as interesting as this, a selective listing of recommended titles, compiled by Helmut Ripperger, noted cookbook authority, has been included.


The World's Best Recipes is a must for every kitchen bookshelf, a gourmet's de­light, and a fascinating introduction to good things to eat from all the world over.
