THE MYSTERY CHEF'S OWN COOK BOOK John Macpherson 1945 HC DJ
Marvelous meals at lower cost, from the Mystery Chef radio show.
Mystery Chef - Nickname of radio/TV chef John MacPherson who hosted the Philadelphia cooking program THE MYSTERY CHEF/NBC/1949. One of NBC's first daytime programs, the show ran on Tuesdays and Thursdays afternoons (later Wednesday) from March 1st through June 29th. MacPherson, a former chemical engineer, arrived in America from London in 1906. He started on radio in the 1930s when he took over a program for a friend and soon began to share his love of cooking with his listening audience. His "Mystery Chef" radio program ran from 1931-45.
The interest in his recipes inspired the 366 page book “The Mystery Chef’s Own Cook Book: Presenting Marvelous Meals at Lower Cost” published in 1934 by The Blakiston Company in Philadelphia.
Chapters included cooking terms, fundamental cooking information (with a wartime supplement section), plus cooking tips on eggs, biscuits/breads/muffins, cakes, waffles, fritters, appetizers, pies, pastry, all kinds of desserts, cakes, cookies, puddings, rarebits and cheese snacks, preparation for dinner parties, canning, and preserving.
