A Book Of Cookrye: Austrian Cauliflower Soup, or More ways to use pulverized vegetables | Vintage Living Today For A Future Tormorrow | Scoop.it
We at A Book of Cookrye, like many people in the United States, are aware of what countries most of our family comes from but know little besides where on a map to point. We have neither stories of the old country nor traditions brought over from across the ocean. We may be able to say what countries our ancestors come from and maybe name a city or two, but that is all we can say about that.
With that in mind, we found a book of Austrian recipes in the library. Being part Austrian, we decided to see if anything resonated with us

Do you save the winter time to organize your clutter? If the answer is is not exactly "yes",  then we are in the same club.

Things Your Grandmother Knew: Winter Brings Cream Soups

Things Your Grandmother Knew: Winter Brings Cream Soups | Vintage Living Today For A Future Tormorrow | Scoop.it

From the October 1932 issue of The Royal Neighbor, on Milady’s Own Page, a reminder that “oysters are not the only food which comes into its own with the ‘R’ months,” cream soups made with milk, butter, and often a cooked and stewed vegetable are welcome when wintry arrives.

Along with recipes for six different cream soups (Cream of Cauliflower Soup, Duchess Soup, Cream of Spinach Soup, Chicken Cream Soup with Noodles, Cream of Crab Soup, and Bean Consomme; click the image to get a large legible scan with all the recipes), the vintage magazine has additional tips on cream soups.
