Food History Project: Woman's Favorite Cook Book (1902)

Dear Readers,

I finally finished my review of this funny, preachy cookbook from 1902, which belonged to my great-grandmother. I'm positive this would never sell today!   The author is more loftily opinionated on more topics than you would believe possible.  Not only are you instructed what to eat, but how to clean your corsets, how to raise your children, and how to keep your figure (among many, many other things).  

This volume is an absolute hoot.  If you're interested in buying a copy, there are actually used ones available on Amazon, although for the content, I think many of the used booksellers have the price set too high.

Yours Truly,
