Description

The listing, Vintage Occident Flour Party Baking Booklet Virginia Roberts Photo-Method has ended.

The Photo-Method For Party Baking, by Virginia Roberts, Home Baking Institute Occident Flour, Minneapolis, Minn., copyright Russell-Miller Milling Co. 1947. An advertising or promotional item, with recipes and how-tos.

What is the "photo-method," you ask? It's not a different baking method, but rather an educational method -- we'll let Virginia Roberts explain:

"...you may wish to know a little something abut how my "Photo-Method" came into being.

Like all home economists, I had dreams for years of perfecting a simple, easy way whereby any one could make excellent bread. I had noticed that most existing recipes for bread did not give the entire method...and I had also noticed that directions were often too general.

Finally, I discovered that the technique of break making can be told better in PICTURES than in any other way. And I knew, too, that no bread method can perform perfectly unless it is fitted to the flour with which it is used.

So...in a word...I set out to create a COMPLETE bread method...with EXACT directions...illustrated with ACTION PHOTOGRAPHS...and especially FITTED TO ENRICHED OCCIDENT FLOUR, the champion bread flour of America."

The result is a booklet with photo instructions along with the bread recipe -- what we might call an early version of the video tutorial!

Staple-bound booklet measures 7 5/8s by 5 7/16s inches; 26 pages, including covers.

Some signs of wear, but no rips or writings; binding is secure. Please view photo and ask questions prior to bidding, thank you. :)
