Historical Cooking Books: The Home cook book : compiled from recipes contributed by ladies of Chicago and other cities and towns by Home for the Friendless (Chicago, Ill.) (1877)

July 1st, 2018 Comments off

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 Sure some ideas might be out of date, but you never know what you might find when you explore these books.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

PREFACE

In issuing this new edition of the Home Cook Book, the Publisher takes renewed pleasure in acknowledging the kind favor with which the work has been received by the intelligent housekeepers of the country, by whose appreciative judgment alone it could have attained to such extraordinary success. In. accordance with the promise made at the outset, improvements have been made from time to time, each adding to the value of the work, and increasing its just popularity. Pursuant to the same policy, the present edition is still further improved by the addition of articles on Servants, Marketing and the Kitchen, which have been prepared expressly for this work, by one of the most prominent and experienced of American housekeepers, whose name would be sufficient guaranty for the value of her suggestions. It will be seen, that in its chief and distinctive character as a collection of choice and valuable recipes, tried and approved by housekeepers of first intelligence and most ample experience, the work is unchanged.
