Food preparation is a chore, particularly when it can involve use of a number of kitchen tools or appliances all of which have to be washed up afterwards. Too much work and fuss in preparation can take the joy out of eating. The food processor, a single kitchen unit which mixes, blends, grinds, chops, minces, mashes, whips, shreds and grates, is a welcome time-saver for the busy housewife. All these functions from one unit not only cuts food preparation time, but encourages experimentation with new recipes and food ideas. Who wouldn’t be more adventurous with the hard work done by mechanical hands? The food processor has achieved wide market acceptance in the U.S.A., Britain and Western Europe and was an instant success from its introduction. The same has proved true in Australia. Already there is a place in the market for a recipe book based on the use of a food processor and this is the first such book produced in Australia. It should sell to a steadily growing market. Home economist Robyn Embury and the skilled support team which produced this book have certainly opened an exciting new potential for home meal preparation. The recipes are exciting and illustrated with mouth-watering appeal. It is a publication no modern hostess, proud of her kitchen skills, should be without. Chapters include Appetisers, Soup, Entrees, Seafood, Meat and Poultry, Vegetables and Salads, Sauces and Dressings, Desserts, Beverages, Cakes, Pastries and Doughs, Preserves , and menus. Hardcover, 128 pages. Un very good pre-loved condition with some slight wear to dustcover.
