The Cutco Cookbook

 I found this book in a brilliant shop called 'Kitchen Witch' in New Orleans. It's the 1961 'Cutco Cook Book' by Margaret Mitchell. I bought it because of the fabulous illustrations throughout, by Frank Marcello. I'll google him and see if I can find anything else.
By the way, if you ever find yourself in New Orleans, I thoroughly recommend a trip to Kitchen Witch. The shop is wonderful, full of vintage cookery books, and some sleepy dogs to pet whilst you browse.
