A digression: several years back I came across plans and drawings for a beautiful chafing dish table in mission style that I build for some friends of mine celebrating their wedding anniversary. Back then I didn’t have the faintest idea what a chafing dish was. Now I do – Ted 😉

Janet McKenzie Hill (1852–1933) was a prominent early practitioner of culinary reform, food science and scientific cooking, author of many cookbooks.

Hill was born in Westfield, Massachusetts, the daughter of Alexander McKenzie, a clergyman, and Nancy (Lewis) McKenzie. In 1873 she married Benjamin M. Hill. Hill took up the study of cooking and its related sciences later in life: she returned to school around age 40, graduating from the Boston Cooking School in 1892. Fannie Farmer was assistant principal at the time. In 1896 she founded the Boston Cooking School Magazine (later renamed American Cookery). Hill produced several cookbooks promoting the products of a particular company, a practice that began during this period. Alice Bradley, an 1897 graduate of the Boston Cooking School, who later bought Miss Farmer’s Cooking school and was cooking editor of the Woman’s Home Companion for twenty years, got her start doing cooking demonstrations for Hill.

Vintage Cook Book Wednesday – “Simple Directions For The Cook” by Caroline Reed Wadhams from 1917 in PDF

“Simple Directions For The Cook”
Caroline Reed Wadhams
published in 1917

From the preface: The author has long been interested in bettering the condition of household workers and has planned for their use the establishment of a hotel and recreation centre with classes in the different branches of household work. This has led to the preparation of these simple directions for the use of the many who may not be able to attend such classes but who desire to advance themselves by becoming more proficient.
      These directions are written for the cook. They are intended to assist her to do her work in the most approved way. 
      This book is not intended as a cookbook although a number of useful recipes are given. It is written for the use of those who apply for employment as cook and who are, therefore, supposed to know the fundamental principles of cooking.
      By following these directions the cook will be reviled of the necessity of constantly asking for instruction from her employer.

Vintage Cook Book Wednesday – "Table Decoration & Delicacies" by Hester Price from 1914 in pdf

Vintage cookbooks

a1037_book

TABLE DECORATIONS AND DELICACIES

A Complete Hand-Book For The Hostess

by

Hester Price
(Mrs. John Dawson Follet)

With Ninety-Six Illustrations

Published in Philadelphia
by The John c Winston Company
in 1914

I was unable to find anything about Hester Price aka Mrs. John Dawson Follet
on the net so the beginning of her foreword in the book will have to do – Ted

To the Hostess:

Every book. however unpretentious in character, owes its origin to an inspiration. If practical, it has a distinct object. This picture book for housekeepers is designed to give some sort of permanence to chiIdhood memories as well as to ideas garnered in later days. These ideas are set forth with the hope that they may be of value to many women who are too busy to give much time to the decorative side of housekeeping. The illustrations show how easily one may brighten and elaborate the table every day and especially upon high days and holidays.

Vintage Cook Book Wednesday – "Breakfast, Luncheon And Tea" by Marion Harland 1875 in pdf

Vintage cookbooks

The old cook book in pdf format that I posted last week received quite some interest both on the blog and on Twitter so I thought I’d better check and see how many of these old cook books I have collected over the last couple of years. Maybe it was enough to build a posting series on. Well, the count came to 72, and that is cook book posting for nearly one and a half year if I post one a week, on Wednesday for example. No need to think more about that is it, all that is needed is a recognizable heading. The one on top here ought to do the trick – Ted
