The Cosmopolitan Cook & Recipe Book

Compiled, Edited and Published by

in
1882

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.

The Century Cook Book
& Family Medical Adviser

by
Jennie A Hansey

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. In compiling the recipes for cooking we have aimed at simplicity and practicability, avoiding, as far as possible, all foreign and ambiguous terms; claiming that, as a rule, American names are good and explicit enough for American cooking.

Nothing’s More Fun Than … Eating Outdoors in PDF

Nothing's More Fun Than ... Eating Outdoors in PDF

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

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.
