Los Angeles Junior League Cookbook, 1930

Junior League Cookbook

A copy of the Los Angeles Junior League cookbook from 1930 has turned up on EBay. It’s not cheap, listed as Buy it Now for $250, but then again, who can put a price on Mrs. John Russell’s recipe for prune whip with soft custard? Or Biltmore chef Gus Waser’s recipe for small cream puffs?  As Junior League cookbooks go, this is quite early and, presumably, collectible. A previous copy sold for $600.

If anybody tries the prune whip, let me know how it turns out.

  1. I just love whoever decided that the cover should be inspired by the Bauhaus.
