The Hood Basic Cook Book has 100's of recipes and includes a bunch of pictures in the middle. It has 740 pages and an index. There are recipes for every meal, a section on meal planning, menus, food shopping, budgets and more.
I love the first section of the book where it tells the history of the Hood family dairy business. There are lots of pages with with handy temperature guides and other tips.
This book is in good condition. Covers show the most wear, with staining and bumped corners. Some page corners are dog-eared but I have tried to straighten them out. Inside pages are clean. A nice addition for any vintage cook book collector.
