Read full description of the books The Complete Book of Cheese:This book is a perfect example of Reading Synchronicity. I happen to love Eric Blegvad, the illustrator, and was looking for books he had illustrated - when this one came up. Which was amazing, because I was almost simultaneously talking with a friend about how much we love cheese...
(Just a little aside about cookbook illustrators - I began cooking as a child from "Betty Crocker's New Picture Cookbook" because of the illustrations by Pearson. And the illustrations by the Provensens in "The Fireside Cookbook" too. I see now that Betty Crocker had a "Dinner For Two" cookbook illustrated by Charles Harper, of all people - I've got to see that! Betty was obviously brilliant. Anyway, a walk down Nostalgia Lane. I need to get copies of all these so Squirt, who loves to cook with me, can have the same fun I did.)
There weren't enough pictures, of course. But the book is great. Full of somewhat snobby fun and interesting facts. (Someone once tried to make cheese out of human milk. :/ ) And odd recipes.
2 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. chopped onion
1 tbsp flour
1 jigger California claret
1 C. cream of tomato soup
A pinch of soda
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. paprika
A dash of powdered cloves
3 C. grated cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
Cook onion in butter until light golden, then blend in flour, wine and soup with the soda and all seasonings. Stir in cheese slowly until melted and finish off by thickening with the egg and stirring until smooth and velvety. Serve on crisp, buttered toast with a dry red wine.
Got to try that.
Read information about the authorBob Brown, born Robert Carlton Brown, liked to say he had written in every genre imaginable: advertising, journalism, fiction, poetry, ethnography, screen-writing, even cookbooks. He wrote at least 1,000 pulp stories, some of which became the basis for “What Happened to Mary?” the first movie serial, released in 1912. He was on the editorial board of the radical magazine The Masses before founding a successful business magazine in Brazil. His output was so varied and his life so far-flung — he boasted of having lived in 100 cities — that some library card catalogs list him as at least two different people.
Brown was also involved in the expatriate literary community in Paris, publishing several volumes of poetry. While in France, Brown also made plans toward, and wrote a manifesto for, the development of a "reading machine" involving the magnified projection of miniaturized type printed on movable spools of tape. Arguing that such a device would enable literature to compete with cinema in a visual age, Brown published a book of "Readies"---poems by Gertrude Stein, William Carlos Williams, Ezra Pound, and others.
He contributed to leading avant-garde journals and wrote, sometimes in collaboration with his wife and mother, some 30 popular books about food and drink, including “Let There Be Beer!” (published after the repeal of Prohibition) and The Complete Book of Cheese. Bob and his family eventually established residence in Rio de Janeiro, where they lived until his wife's death in 1952. Bob soon returned to New York where he re-married, and ran a shop called Bob Brown's Books in Greenwich Village until his death in 1959.
