"The American fighting man today does not have a personal chef, but he does have his C-Rations. The contents of these
remarkable packages contain far more nutriments than normally required for any man in the field and offer solid
good-tasting meals that are the envy of fighting men all over the world.  Occasionally, though, a trooper will find it
necessary to depend on C-Rations for a prolonged perid of time...and it is with this in mind that
TABASCO brand pepper
sauce thought of a recipe book to help add dash and variety.....All he needs is imagination and a buddy who will act as
assistant chef.  Whether eaten alone, with a buddy or in a group, the recipes found in this book are used in single units and
various combinations of the basic C-Rations.   Some outside ingredients may help, but they are not essential to the
menus...."
