Chauvinist's in the kitchen

I have a collection of old cookbooks. My favorites are the one's written by church groups or the wife's club.
This is one 1970's cookbook that takes the cake.It is broken up into several chapters 'Light Suppers for Heavy Dates' and 'The Morning After' . You get the idea... It is hilarious to read. The recipes aren't bad, and sure to be a 'winner'.
I am going to try this recipe for grilled chicken breasts.

Wine & Spice Charcoal Chicken
3oz Sauterne (white wine)
1 oz burgundy
1 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs Worcestershire
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp each mustard, ginger, rosemary, paprika and pepper
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp tarragon
pinch cayenne
chicken- Breasts are best!
Remove skin from chicken. Put chicken in marinade overnight (or a minimum or 4 hours) Cook over charcoal, turning frequently, for about 1/2 hour. Baste with the remaining marinade.

After a little googling, I have found that you can get your own copy of the Chauvinist Cookbook on Amazon for 17cents. I hope the original male chauvinist has already banked a bundle on this cookbook~ because at that price he is loosing out.
It would be a great gift for National Grouch Day. Do something nice for your grouch today!
Y'all enjoy!

That's cracking me up. How funny.

Brad'll Do It said...

To piggyack on Sally's comment (pun intended), when I read this post, I thought you should have had a pork, ham, or bacon recipe, given the title of the book.

joan said...

I've never heard of this cookbook but it cracks me up. You are so right, the best cookbooks are church group and even ones that schools put together.

No way am I getting this book for my husband. We've been married almost 28 years and and he's cooked 2 meals. The first meal he dirtied every utensil in the kitchen (I was left to clean up the mess ~ each time he stirred the pan, he used a new spoon ~ you get the idea). The second time, he caught my kitchen on fire. No, this will not be in his stocking for Christmas.

He's not good in the kitchen and that's just fine with me. . .I kind of am afraid for him to venture into that room now anyways LOL.

He's very good at doing other things, but cooking is just not his bag :)

That is SO funny! I love old cookbooks too, and this time of year always makes me want to cook.

Dining Alone said...

Darn my Gas Grill :( I may just have to try it and see how it goes. I love quirky old cookbooks. I just picked up a betty crocker "Cooking for Two" cookbook from the 60s at the library book sale, its hilarious.

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Y'all are so punny wiht your piggy talk!

Sher~ It sounds like you have raised that husband right.
Dining Alone~ you don't need to dine alone with a cookbook like this.
