First let me rave about P.O.S.H. It is a little boutique in a historic building with vintage wares and a European vibe. The inventory includes vintage hotel glassware, old postcards and maps, new linens, great stationery, and a lot of cute gifts. We stumbled on this store a year or so ago while walking to one of our favorite restaurants. We try to stop by when we are in the city.
This cookbook is both about the recipes and the story of the Great Depression. As you read through the book, you will find sections of food (and a whole section devoted to pickles!) and stories from people who lived through the Depression. Some stories drive home exactly how tough it was for some families and others share a funny memory or details about life at home, school or church.
