Fish gratin is a classic Norwegian dinner dish. It’s a simple, fast and child-friendly way to cook fish. It has always been one of my favorites, whether made with potatoes, macaroni or shellfish like here.
This is a delicious dessert cake from the time when farmers made their own sour cream. There is no need for the apples in the cake, but they add a fresh fruity flavor you may have to replace by serving jams with the cake if left out.

Most everybody thinks of spaghetti when Italian cookery is mentioned, but few persons are aware of the fact that the little tart which fills such an important place on our dessert list is almost as popular in some parts of Italy as the well-known spaghetti.
Cheesecake is a cake-like pie, which usually contains the kesam (or another unsalted cream cheese), egg, milk and sugar.
Already in Roman antiquity, a type of cheesecake was made of sour cream and kesame. Recipes have been retrieved from Cato the Elder’s collection, where he refers to two types: libum and placenta. Of the two, the placenta resembles most modern cheesecakess, since it has a crust that is baked separately.

As I mentioned the first time I posted from this book, food flavoured with coffee tends to be most popular among grown-ups. But who cares, as I concluded then, we are grown-ups aren’t we – Ted

They must have made money back then, because these books were not cheap to make and we should all be thankful to those people who have had the sense to save them for posterity so we can all enjoy them today – Ted
An eighteen centure sickbed recipe found on Revolutionary Pie
Karen Hammonds who runs Revolutionary Pie writes: Modern custard recipes usually call for vanilla, but that wasn’t used in America in colonial times. Thomas Jefferson first brought vanilla beans back from France in the 1890s, and as Richard Sax noted in Classic Home Desserts, vanilla extract wasn’t widely available until the mid-19th century. Eighteenth-century custards were flavored with wine or brandy, tea, or spices. I added nutmeg to Simmons’s recipe since it seemed so bland — but I guess that was sort of the point.
An 18th centure dessert recipe found on evolutionarypie.com
Karen Hammonds who runs https://revolutionarypie.com writes: John Campbell Loudoun’s apple pudding recipe first caught my eye because it was written in verse. A rarity today, rhyming recipes were common in the 19th and early 20th centuries, when they were supposedly used by housewives to help them remember recipes. Loudoun’s poem, attributed to him by Kristie Lynn and Robert Pelton, authors of The Early American Cookbook, is much older, dating back to the 18th century.
