On the Road Again
May 12, 2016
Michelin had the idea first, but it was a good one. The Ford Times Cookbook might not offer quite as many restaurants “worth the voyage,” it does offer a wonderful window into the great American road trip of the sixties.
The interstate highways did away with too many of these old motels; it’s nice to have a little reminder.
In addition to pretty pictures, there are also a few scrumptious looking recipes. Stay tuned for those tomorrow…

Love these travel-cum-cookbooks! My dad worked for a Ford dealership in the 1960s and I grew up with a couple of these books. To this day, my favorite carrot cake and pancake recipes come from one edition. I got nostalgic a couple of Christmases ago, and ordered other years from web sources, if only to read through them. Miss the “road trip” vacations that gave rise to this series.
