Recipes China Princess Pecan Brittle: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Cookbook

Published in 1981, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Cookbook features 121 bright pages of simple recipes meant “for the young, and for the young in heart,” plus a handy cooking terms section and index. Don’t go envisioning Judy Garland now, friends. This book explores the far more complex Oz of literature. Author Monica Bayley explains in a foreword that her recipes are suggested by a formula of regional associations, references in the story text, and dominant food color matchups with Oz locations such as the yellow brick road, the Emerald City and the lands of Quadlings, Winkies, Gillikins and Munchkins.
