‘Cakes and Pastries’ by Cleve Carney from 1926 in PDF

‘Cakes and Pastries’ by  Cleve Carney from 1926 in PDF

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.AcroRd32_2017-07-26_02-02-06

The Cosmopolitan Cook & Recipe Book from 1882 in PDF

The Cosmopolitan Cook & Recipe Book from 1882 in PDF

The Cosmopolitan Cook & Recipe Book

Compiled, Edited and Published by
Dingens Brothers

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.
