When I first moved to Washington, D.C. in 1971 a co-worker decided to help me improve my cooking skills. She bought me this great little paperback which remains an important go-to for specific recipes. The fruit torte is one of the easiest and tastiest cakes for all seasons. While other recipes may be dated, I remain devoted to this little book and keep it on my kitchen bookshelf.
