On the third Monday of each month in 2015,  La Cocina Histórica will feature a different volume of the  issue of the serial publication Almanaque Dulce, sharing sweet treats from the 1930s to the 1970s.


In the mid-1950s, Almanaque Dulce again separated recipes into chapters, but with some new additions. While the bulk of the publication still consists of sweets, there are also savory chapters featuring recipes such as chicken salad and shrimp soup. While no explanation of the change is given in the publi17cation, one wonders if rising public awareness of sugar’s limited nutritional value might have played a role in the decision.
