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 No comments

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 Sure some ideas might be out of date, but you never know what you might find when you explore these books.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

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.

Available in PDF, Text, JPG formats, and more

Reading – In The Restaurant: Society in Four Courses by Christoph Ribbat (Translated by Jamie Searl Romanelli) – 20 in a series

July 4th, 2018 Comments off

I’ll be highlighting books that I am reading (or re-reading) on all sorts of topics this year — Douglas

Reading – In The Restaurant: Society in Four Courses by Christoph Ribbat (Translated by Jamie Searl Romanelli) – 20 in a series

I love books that focus on very specific areas of history — like building the Duomo in Florence, the painting of the Sistine Chapel, the California Gold Rush — because it is through the focus on the “small” history that I believe we better illuminate the “big” picture of the past. “In The Restaurant” provides just such historical illumination by showing the reader a history of the restaurant from its humblest beginnings to its most outrageous (and expensive) modern examples. Through this history lies a huge story of the catered and those that cater to them, the workers and those who employ them, the stark differences between the carefully orchestrated scene in the dining room and the humble, hot and harried scene behind the kitchen door. Two separated by a small piece of wooden door but infinitely different in character, style, and substance. By learning more about restaurants we earn about history itself an might just see our next restaurant visit in a different — and more illuminating light.

From Amazon.com…

What does eating out tell us about who we are? The restaurant is where we go to celebrate, to experience pleasure, to see and be seen – or, sometimes, just because we’re hungry. But these temples of gastronomy hide countless stories.

As this dazzlingly entertaining, eye-opening book shows, the restaurant is where performance, fashion, commerce, ritual, class, work and desire all come together. Through its windows, we can glimpse the world.

This is the tale of the restaurant in all its guises, from the first formal establishments in eighteenth-century Paris serving ‘restorative’ bouillon, to today’s new Nordic cuisine, via grand Viennese cafés and humble fast food joints. Here are tales of cooks who spend hours arranging rose petals for Michelin stars, of the university that teaches the consistency of the perfect shake, of the lunch counter that sparked a protest movement, of the writers – from Proust to George Orwell – who have been inspired or outraged by the restaurant’s secrets.
