Historical Cooking Books: Leaves from our Tuscan kitchen, or, How to cook vegetables by Janet Ross,(1899) – 35 in a series

August 11th, 2019 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 Sure some ideas might be out of date, but you never know what you might find when you explore these books.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

PREFACE

The innate love of change in man is visible even in the kitchen. Not so very long ago soup was an exception in English houses — almost a luxury. A dish of vegetables — as a dish and not an adjunct to meat — was a still greater rarity ; and even now plain – boiled potatoes, peas, cabbages, etc., are the rule. When we read of the dishes, fearfully and wonderfully made, in the old Italian novelle , we wonder whence the present Italians got their love of vegetables and maccaroni.

The Story

I took over 200 photos as we walked around the Valley with our Sicilian relatives. The sun was blazing but we soaked in the history of the site through these remains from antiquity. It is difficult to truly understand that Greek speaking people walked, played, ate and worshiped at this site so many years before. You almost have to remind yourself that this isn’t some movie set made for your entertainment, but rather the survivors of human’s long history on the planet.
