Cookbook for food processor
I picked it up from a local library and it was in such good condition. Given the publication date of 1979, I immediately became suspicious. The book is over 40 years old and it looks so good? That might mean no one was interested in it from the beginning. The pictures were pretty crisp and the recipes were simple. Be sure to check out the recipes for Chilled chicken loaf and Glazed ham balls. Aside from cabbage salad recipes or perhaps making things like bread crumbs, a food processor was not necessary for some of the recipes.
Food processors were the “it” device in the 70’s and were outrageously expensive compared to other kitchen electronics. I did not see them as a regular part of kitchens until the 1980s. The brand that goes to it was Cuisinart. (Click for article by enjoy your meal On the origins of Cuisinart.) I finally broke down and bought a food processor in the 90s thinking it would be wonderful to have thinly sliced potatoes for certain family recipes. Since I’m not a real cook, this device is used maybe once or twice a year.
I think like Instant Pot, this was probably a great choice because food processors have become more mainstream. I’m not sure that in 2021 it has the same level of interest as in the 70s and 80s. It will be seen if the Instant Pot has the latency.
