Historical Cooking Books: Original recipes of good things to eat by Order of the Eastern Star. Logan Square Chapter No. 560 (Chicago, Ill.) (1919) – 5 in a series

July 8th, 2018

Archive.org has a host of old cookery books (from mid-19th to mid-20th Century) available in many formats and on a host of topics. I happened across a few in my Pinterest feed and gone completely down the rabbit hole in this treasure trove of information. Sure some ideas might be out of date, but you never know what you might find when you explore these books. I’ll be sharing more books as I find them in the coming weeks. –Douglas


The section on the hiring and treatment of servants is very interesting and applies to all employees today! — Douglas

Good friends, Im placed here in your view
To introduce myself to you.
Between my covers you will find.
Choice Recipes of every kind.
You need not be a third-rate cook,
For all you have to do is look.
I’ll teach you how to mix and bake
The things that mother used to make
Good things to drink and things to eat
And hard and soft and sour and sweet.
All credit goes, I must confess,
To LOGAN SQUARE CHAPTER, O. E. S.
They put me here to tell you why
This splendid COOK-BOOK you should buy.

Compiled by members of
LOGAN SQUARE CHAPTER, No. 560
Order of the Eastern Star

To Our Friends:

“But for life, the universe were nothing; and all that has life re-quires nourishment”

Cookery is the art of preparing food for the nourishment of the body. In preparing this book we wish that it may not only be looked upon as a compilation of tried and tested recipes, but that it may awaken a deeper in- terest in our friends and a broader study of what to eat.
