Man-Pleasing Recipes

The title of this 1971 recipe book was somewhat misleading. It claimed to feature "Man-Pleasing Recipes," but really it was a collection of recipes featuring rice as the main ingredient. The booklet was put out by the Rice Council for P.R. purposes. Part of an effort to promote rice as a manly food.

Can't say it succeeded. When I think of foods traditionally perceived as "manly," rice isn't one of the things that comes to mind.

Doesn't every woman dream of pleasing her man with rice?

A favorite around the house when I was a wee lad was leftover beef, usually a roast, diced fine, pan fried along with garlic and green onion, a few eggs to make a scramble, then served over rice.

My wife has an old pie cookbook whose introduction includes the rather fabulous sentence, "Remember: pies please men"
