Here's a VERY hard to find VINTAGE copy of the cookbook (see ALL the pics!) titled...
THE HILO'S WOMAN'S CLUB COOK BOOK~~~ Hawaiian Recipes
THIS copy is a 2nd printing from March, 1943 (just so you know---1st Edition was July 1937.)
For its age, the cookbook is in nice condition. The grass straw rope that holds the cookbook together is still in tack and shows only light wear. There was a sticker on the front cover that had been removed and in doing so, removed some of the cover's paper. There's also a light crease in the front cover from being thumbed through.
INSIDE front cover, there's a note in fountain pen that reads: From Jack Jones. That's the only writing I found. There's a bruise on the side edges of the pages--a small ding, but it doesn't show on many pages. The BACK COVER looks like it was exposed to some water (see pics) but it didn't effect any of the pages of the cookbook.
The cookbook measures 6 inches wide by just over 8 inches tall with 124 pages.
Chapters include: Appetizers, Beverages, Breads & Rolls, Cakes, Chinese Dishes, Sauces. Fish, Fruits. Luau, Hawaiian Dishes, Poultry, Preserves, Pies, Salads & Dressings Vegetables and MORE! There's an average of 4 recipes per page.
From the Foreword...Hilo women, whose origins are worldwide, have developed in this small island community a truly international cuisine. They have adopted products of the Islands and unusual and interesting dishes from many lands for use in basically American cookery.
Recipes using native Hawaiian fruit, vegetables and seafood are included generously in this collection.
It is not in any area or tradition a definitive cook book. It is a selection of choice recipes from the kitchens of members and friends which have proved popular and successful.
A hard to find vintage in this good condition!
