Historical Cooking Books – 37 in a series – The Appledore cook book: containing practical receipts for plain and rich cooking by Maria Parloa
In offering this little book to the public, I am aware that there are many good cook books in the market already. But I trust that this will supply a want which has always been felt by young housekeepers. The great trouble with all the cook books which I have known (and I am constantly hearing the same complaint) is, that they are too expensive, and that they use weight instead of measure, and also that they take for granted that the young housekeeper knows many things which she really does not This want I have endeavored to supply in this little volume. Hav- ing had years of experience as a cook in private fam- ilies and hotels, I know the wants of the masses, and feel competent to supply them.
