Chick-n-Que In The Digital Library

Posted on Jul 2 2011 - 6:12am by RetroRuth


All Out For A Chick-n-Que is now scanned and available in our Digital Library of vintage cookbooks. This book is another from my grandmother’s stash of clipped recipes and grocery store handouts.  This one comes from Jewel, the grocery store in Chicago during her lifetime. Whenever we would visit her in her brick home on Linder Ave., she would have rolls, deli chicken breast and sliced American cheese from The Jewel.  

So get all of your friends together,  break out your man-apron, your nifty hat, your cardboard dog and your MSG, because this is going to teach you how to host one rockin’ Chick-n-Que.

The Flipping book above may take a bit to load, but it is totally worth it. You can make it full screen with the screen button on the far left at the bottom, you can zoom in with the magnifying glass AND you can PRINT this book with the printing button on the right. Enjoy, and if you have any scanned pamphlets you want to add to the digital library, email me at
