I'm not sure if some of these techniques and tips have been overturned in the high court of cuisine since 1959, but these instructions are truly specific ("tell the butcher to use his sharpest knife...), and the two-barrel husband and wife delivery is pretty classic...which they are suggesting delivered in a style that resonates how the meals should prepared: with the wife in charge and the husband in a supporting role "Okay now do your stuff" and delivered full of metaphors "because why not, isn't a perfect meal a poem in human values." I've listened enough to old comedy albums by white people to know that they usually just aren't funny (unless you get people like Mae West and WC Fields together), so I assumed this would be completely boring, but it's pretty charming and entertaining, and the attempts at comedy work well because you're not just grinning (and a few times I laughed out loud), you're learning something useful! Cooking shows of today could learn a thing or two from this wife/husband delivery. -- winch
(I found an audio digital edition of this record on the world wide web and while it was purposely not cleaned up and the surface noise intact, I found it annoying instead of charming...digital vs. analog...I guess that's why people buy records!)
