Planned Parenthood's Book Sale - The last day

well...I think I hauled in enough this year. Got in early...without too much damage. The prices seemed to be lower this year than in the past...I ended up with a book that they priced last year at $10 for $3 this year.

Some of the titles I found -

A La San Francisco Restaurant Recipes. A spiralbound cookbook from Crabtree Publishing from 1979. Many of the storied City restaurants featured in the book are, alas, no more. But their recipes live on. Some of the Restaurants featured... The Blue Fox (Bonless Loin of Lamb en Chemise), The Carnelian Room (Fresh Sauteed Crablegs with Chablis Dill Sauce), La Bourgogne (Crab Legs Ambassador), Trader Vic's (Agar Pepper Salad) and Doro's (Grand Marnier Souffle)

Oregon Sampler: Resorts & Recipes. A spiralbound cookbook benefiting the Assistance League of Corvallis. Pringed in 1985/1986. This cookbook highlights many of Oregon's fine resorts and hotels that were operating at that time. I don't know if they still are running..but it would be a delicious trip to find out! Some include: The Heathman Hotel - Portland (Northwest Game Pate Filling), Timberline Lodge - Timberline (Pineapple Peach Chutney), Campus Cottage - Eugene (Cheese Souffle Roll), Salishan Lodge - Gleneden Beach (Halibut with Shrimp Sauce) and Inn of the Seventh Mountain - Bend (Oregon Blackberry Tart)

The Captain's Table or The Compleat Mess. A 2 ring cookbook from the First Mates Coronado Yacht Club from what year....who knows?. I love these Yacht Club books as they always feature a "Galley" section highlighting foods you can cook onboard, this one includes a Hearty Tuna Chowder submitted by Dorothy Allen of the "Cucurucucu" The chapters are a hoot. "The Warning Gun" (cocktails), "Port & Starboard" (side dishes), "Sea Chests" (casseroles), "Hardtack & Stuff" (breads) and "Old Salts" (contributors of the recipes)

More later. But that is just a little sampler. Might have to stop by for one more forage expedition. But...shhh...don't tell anyone in cookbook collectors anonymous.
