From Library Journal
Storey is the cofounder of Storey Books, which publishes "country cooking" books, gardening guides, and other practical titles, and she's also the mother of three and the grandmother of eight. Many of these 500 recipes are family favorites, while others come from popular Storey authors. Time-honored, as the subtitle says, or dated, depending on your point of view, they include such old standards as Seafood Newburg (with Velveeta) and Frosted Lettuce Wedges; and many of the recipes are available in other standard sources. Perhaps the most useful parts of the book are the introduction and the sections on "Arts of the Country Kitchen" and "Arts of the Country Home," which include illustrated guides to techniques and terms, equipment and ingredients, preserving, cheese making, crafts, gardening, and more. For larger cookery and crafts collections.
