16mo. Unpaginated. Book is VG with some moderate stains and discolorations to cover. Signed by the author on the front endpaper. Hines wasn't a chef or a master baker himself. In fact, he was a traveling salesman for a printing company. The job doesn't sound like it would help someone become a food expert, but since Hines was forever on the road - he averaged 40,000-60,000 miles of car travel a year - he ate most of his meals in restaurants. He and his wife, Florence, loved to travel on weekends, which made meals at home even more rare for Hines.All of those restaurant dinners and lunches started to add up, and Hines soon found himself extremely knowledgeable on the best place to get a bite to eat in towns all over the country. Eventually he and Florence had a fun idea: they compiled a list of recommendations for their favorite restaurants in various cities around the country and sent it to friends as Christmas gifts.It would be hard to top Hines' restaurant list for the title of "Most Successful Christmas Newsletter of All Time." His friends loved it so much that in 1935 Hines turned his travels into a book, Adventures in Good Eating. Book buyers adored Hines' opinions as much as his friends did, and in 1938 he released a companion book, Lodging for a Night, that told travelers where to stay when they were seeking out these delicious meals. Hines soon became America's favorite restaurant and hotel critic.Duncan Hines became and remains a household name mostly due to savvy licensing of his name to food manufacturers, most notably Proctor & Gamble which has made him synonymous with that American institution the cake mix, since the late 1950s.* * * [Please note: additional postage fees may be required for oversized and/or international orders to be shipped.].
