    The Belgian Cookbook TOC where recipes are broken up into food categories. Preface talks about Belgian refugees that the author got the recipes from. Different food categories and meals are discussed. Each recipe starts with a title. Some do not even list the ingredients. Paragraph following the title tells you what ingredients to add and how to make the dish. There are no pictures, no servings, no nutritional information. Pink rice, what a cool idea for a kid to enjoy using beets! Index is included a The Belgian Cookbook TOC where recipes are broken up into food categories.

Very hard to read with no list of ingredients and so much more information we are so used to seeing.

    Interesting Cookbook Many of the recipes in this cookbook I'd not seen before. I'm not even sure I'd be able to find the ingredients, such as skate. The recipes sound interesting, and I look forward to trying some of them. Interesting Cookbook Many of the recipes in this cookbook I'd not seen before.

    In this intriguing little book full of recipes “sent by Belgian refugees from all parts of the United Kingdom,” -assumedly refugees from World War I-, with names and qualiticatives such as “Seulette” (“Lonely”), “Pour la Patrie” (“For the Fatherland”), “Chef reconnaissant” (“Grateful Chef”), “une amie au couvent” (“A Friend in a Convent”), etc., one would like to know more about these refugees’ life stories.

But the recipes, most of them Belgian standards, nevertheless open a window to a time when cooking was hearty and not necessarily caloric-count conscious: cream, milk, potatoes, roasts… It also sounds worthy of experimentation, especially since there are no weight specific indications beyond “ little of…,” “a dab of…,” “a good amount of…,” etc. I wish I could get a copy as fine as the Library’s, which they had to pull out of the stacks (since no one has borrowed this book in a very long time). It was the most gorgeous little book, with a red leather cover.

    Sample recipe from the book: "LEEK SOUP. Cut up two onions and fry them till they are brown; you need not use butter, clarified fat will do very well. Clean your leeks, washing them well; cut them in pieces and fry them also; add any other vegetables that you have, two medium-sized potatoes, pepper, salt, and a little water. Let all simmer for three hours, and pass it through a fine sieve. Let there be more leeks than other vegetables, so that their flavor predominates." Sample recipe from the book: "LEEK SOUP.

    Interesting This cookbook is presented as it's cooks must have made these recipes a long while ago. Not many measurements and a lot of driving... I don't know how much I'll cook out of it, but a great addition to my cookbooks! Interesting This cookbook is presented as it's cooks must have made these recipes a long while ago.
