Read Books, 2009 - Cooking - 284 pages
The purpose of this early works is to enable housekeepers to know the cost of each dish at average market prices, and to provide in each recipe a quantity sufficient for six persons. It is not designed to instruct beginners in minute details pertaining to the proper preparation of dishes in daily use; that department has already been ably treated by other writers. The author's intention is to put before her readers a book which will enable them to practice both economy and hospitality, and to make it possible for the inexperienced to calculate exactly the cost of a projected entertainment....This early works is an absorbing collection of recipes with many of them still useful and practical today. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
