    This is an oldie but goodie that my great aunt used to make years ago. It was in her recipe collection. She found the recipe in "The Old Vanity Fair Tearoom Cookbook", published in the late 1920's. Tea rooms were popular in that era, and especially the Vanity Fair, located at 4 West Fortieth Street, New York City. The tearoom is long gone, but I'd love to see what's at that address now.

    Recipe #425961

    Bullock's Tea Room was noted for their delicious and very popular popovers. They are easy to make. The secret is to place the custard cups far apart enough on the baking sheet so that all sides of each popover get the same blast of heat needed to rise evenly. Muffin tins don't work well with popovers. This recipe makes a high-rising puffy popover, that can be served at any meal of the day.

    Recipe #431383

    The Los Angeles Times published this recipe in 1979, back when chinese chicken salads were all the rage. I still make this recipe but usually add some manderin orange segements on top.

    Recipe #330405

    Bullock's Department Stores were Los Angeles icons that were around since 1907 when the first store opened, until the end of the century when the entire chain of stores had been sold. Their tea rooms featured good food, elegant decor and great fashion shows. This is a nostalgia recipe, a reminder from those good old days. The prized recipe was provided to the Los Angeles Times by the family of Hazel Wilson, head baker at Bullock's Pasadena. The recipe calls for one 9-inch baked pie shell, either purchased or one made in advance. The preparation here is for the pie filling with a meringue topping baked just long enough singe the meringue.

    This salad with its sweet, pink tinted poppy-seed dressing was a favorite with clients at the 1929 Art Deco Wilshire Store Tea Room. The store closed in the '90's and is now the home of the Southwest Law School. It's art deco decor has been preserved and the building is now on the National Register of Historic Places. This had been the most famous and expensive of the Bullocks stores, and had a clientel that included the rich and famous. The recipe had been published in the Los Angeles Times food section when the tea room was closed.

    Recipe #304563

    Another nostalgia recipe, this dish was popular at Bullock's Westwood Village, a store that opened in 1932 as a suburban store; but is now surrounded by high rise buildings. It had been my favorite store because it was close by. I can remember happy times shopping with friends, then having lunch in the tea room while watching the fashion show. Recipe submitted to the Los Angeles Times by Louise De Vries, food and beverage director at the department store's Tea Room.

    Recipe #305072

    The word "Bullocks" without an apostrophe was used only in the name of the Wilshire store, the most famous and popular of them all. Here you would find a line of people waiting for tables reaching from the tea room to the elevators. In 1983 customers would pay $100. for Easter baskets and order a half dozen. When they offered a Champagne and caviar tasting at $125.a head in '83 they packed the room. The Orange Roll recipe was developed at this store. Note: you may need a bit more flour than is called for in the recipe. Recipe and information from the Los Angeles Times.

    Recipe #305142

    This old time favorite has been published in the Los Angeles Times many times over the years that the Bullocks Department Store chain was in existance. It's still my favorite poppy seed dressing.
