Dining aboard the Route of the Daylight: Dining Car Recipes of the Southern Pacific Railroad, October 1, 1944

Dining aboard the Route of the Daylight: Dining Car Recipes of the Southern Pacific Railroad, October 1, 1944

234 pages, 6″x9″ spiral bound softcover

The pages of this original mid-century cookbook have been painstakingly scanned and digitally retouched to eliminate fading, staining, and other age issues found in the original.

The reader will find dishes that are remarkably similar to modern-day standards, as well as some that are very “of the time.” Only a handful of recipes include ingredient lists, and some of the instructions are vague; a certain level of culinary experience and knowledge to fill in these blanks was required before a Southern Pacific employee would even be issued one of these cookbooks. Most of the recipes are designed for single-portion cooking, which is different from most railroad cookbooks of the era.

This book presents the recipes exactly as the Southern Pacific set them forth on paper in 1944, spiral-bound and in a new larger format for ease of use in the kitchen. We hope you enjoy preparing these authentic “Espee” dishes in your own home!
