That’s far out, Dave. Because I just packed my copy of that cookbook. It had been hidden behind something else and when I found it on the shelf I said, aha, that’s one I definitely want to take with me.

My favorite cornbread recipe, though, is from The Vegetarian Epicure, Book I, not quite as vintage as the Orton’s classic, but getting there. I’ll send it to you, along with a recipe for Indian pudding, for true New England cornmeal use.

The Vermont Country Store Catalog was a fixture in our house, growing up, and the first time I went there for real, I think the Ortons were still running it.
