Early American CookeryRegular price $26.00
This amazing piece of folk history was originally published in 1896 amidst a colonial revival frenzy that swept America’s eastern seaboard in the 1890s. Determined to preserve American colonial cooking, Margaret Hooker collected quaint and curious recipes and remedies that appear to have come from old and reliable sources ranging form the mid-1700s to mid-1800s. Her 266 original illustrations of cooking utensils give us a glimpse of colonial America as seen through the eyes of a young artist and teacher of 1896. Recipes, beauty secrets, etiquette, candle making and household hints are included. Written in 18th century long S style print. Author: Margaret Huntington Hooker; Native Ground Books; softcover 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"; 248 pages.
