Tapioca (/ˌtæpɪˈoʊkə/; Portuguese pronunciation: [tapiˈɔkɐ]) is a starch extracted from cassava root (Manihot esculenta). This species is native to the northeast region of Brazil, but its use spread throughout South America.

This book contains the best recipes and mixes used in my experience of twenty years as a practical baker, and have been responsible for whatever success I have enjoyed. As a student of baking practice and advisor to many wholesale bakers, as well as smaller establishments and in my own business, I have found opportunity to thoroughly demonstrate their practicability and desirability from a profit and trade building standpoint. I have tried to make the directions and explanatory notes as clear and concise as possible, and hope they will help you to make a better or more varied line of goods. Used with care and good judgment, I hope they will be appreciated by the trade in general. These recipes have been prepared especially for those bakers who desire to build up a better class of trade.

It is not often one gets a chance to laugh out loud when reading a cook book, but this book provides that chance in rich amount. “A Bachelor’s Cupboard” with the undertitle “Containing crumbs Culled from the Cupboards of the Great Unwedded” written in 1906 by A Lyman Phillips is greatly entertining.
From the book intro:
“Being a bachelor is easy. Staying a bachelor—ah! there’s the hitch! But that’s another story. Yes, it’s easy to be a bachelor, but to be a thoroughbred, unless it is inbred and the single man is ” to the manner born,” is more difficult. It requires unlimited time, patience and education as well as a store of myriad bits of information on a multitude of subjects.
The “correct” bachelor must not only know how, but he must know why. He must be a woman’s man and a man’s man, an all-round ” good fellow.” He must “fit” everywhere and adapt himself to all sorts of society under all sorts of circumstances. Good breeding and kindliness of heart are the essentials. These, above everything, he must have; and given them, the other attributes may be easily acquired by study and observation.”
