This is a wonderful book! So fun to read how cooking and baking were done the 1700's and realize we can learn from those methods even now. Some wording is a little open to interpretation but it does transport you back in time just reading it, even if you don't use it as a cookbook.
Couldn't put it down. Fantastic novel!
