Myrna brought this book to coffee time, and I thought it had some new ideas to try. It’s called Fan Fare, and was fund raiser for the Des Moines Symphony Guild in 1990. The original owner received it as a gift from her “bridge buddies.” A good many of the recipes are geared to entertaining, and they also included recipes from upscale, well-known restaurants and clubs in town at the time. The last chapter, named Fantasia, included everything that didn’t fit into the other chapters, from barbequed pig outdoors, to Organ Grinder Pate and New York Philharmonic Salad!
We found several good recipes to try.
