Soups, fish, sauces, pickles, meats, vegetables, salads, puddings, pastries, creams, desserts, preserves, jellies, butter, cheese, eggs, breads, cakes, beverages, invalid cookery, misc.

And it has several unusual recipes I have not seen in any of my other cookbooks. Have a calf's head? Partridge - 6 recipes / if you like to pickle things - there are a few unusual recipes in here.

Dryer sheets in them for a few months makes a world of difference! My nose doesn't work like it use to. So the old book smell doesn't bother me.As far as I can tell -this book does have a slight light odor, I have put extra dryer sheets in it - should be smelling fine in a month or so!
