From the forword
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.”
The book’s Chapters runs like this:
On Being a Bachelor
The Impecunious Bachelor
Stocking the Cupboard
Around the Camp Fire
Carving and Game
Snacks of Sea Food
A Chat on Cheese
Devils and Grills
Mexican and Creole Cooking
Bachelor Bonnes Bouchees
Variations with Vegetables
A Dissertation on Drinks
What to Pay for Wines
Correct Wines for all Occasions
How a Man May Valet Himself
How to Cleanse Clothes
Bachelors out there should not miss out on the chance of downloading this exceedingly helpful publication. It provides hints and suggestions on a lot more than mere cooking. Unwed young women should grab the chance too, so they can learn what they should expect from the unwed young men out there.

The Cosmopolitan Cook & Recipe Book
Compiled, Edited and Published by
The object of the Cosmopolitan Cook and Recipe Book is
to provide the Public with a cheap but honest and practical
Cook Book, containing Recipes for the preparation of dishes
to suit all tastes and purses.
The compilers of this work have examined a large number
of Cook Books varying in price from one to five dollars, and
while they all contained some good Recipes, still they seemed to
a great extent to be copies of each other, most generally lacked
the details required to successfully produce the dish required,
and frequently seemed to be intended for persons of large
means only—that is, there was no attempt at economy.

In preparing this book for the public our object has been to fill a long-felt want, namely a book to which perplexed and inexperienced housekeepers can go and be sure that they will find therein something to tide them over the emergencies that occur in every household.

Nothing’s More Fun Than … Eating Outdoors
by Milton Youngren
Published by National Dairy Council in 1958
It’s a book full of recipes tested by experience . . . cookery hints . . . camp tricks . . . outdoor merriment.
When you and your friends head for the wonderland of the great outdoors, everybody’s going to want to eat! You’ll get a real kick out of being able to produce a delicious outdoor meal – one that’s fun and easy to fix.
I’ve camped on the banks of the Yellowstone River—by the clear waters of Bright Angel Creek at the bottom of the Grand Canyon—on the picturesque shores of Lake Champlain. I’ve toted a pack across Death Valley—carried grub along the Mohawk—enjoyed bear stew in Michigan—venison steaks on winter trails. You never need be hungry on a camping trip. At the end of each day’s going there’s the cheerful cooking fire the fragrance of food steaming in the pot—of Hunter’s Biscuits ready in a jiffy and maybe spiced with fresh, wild berries. Find your campsite, build the right kind of a cooking fire, get a supply of water at hand, and fill the air with that irresistible smell of food cooking in the open. There’s nothing else like it – From the intro by the author
