A

PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR HOUSEKEEPERS IN

THE PREPERATION

OF

EVERY DAY MEALS

This sale is for an original 1875 edition of "COOKERY FROM EXPERIENCE ~ A PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR HOUSEKEEPRS IN THE PREPARATION OF EVERY DAY MEALS" by Sara T. Paul, published by Porter and Coates of Philadelphia.

Written in 1875, Mrs. Paul book bears all the marks of the early cookbooks, including a good bit of information on housekeeping as well as tried and true methods for such things as removing tar and storing meat in hot weather. While there are seriously dated offerings, one can find recipes that seem to have been written by today's most innovative chefs!

This book is a PRACTICAL GUIDE for housekeepers in the preparation of EVERY DAY MEALS containing more than one thousand domestic receipts, mostly tested by personal experience; with suggestions for :

MEALS

LISTS OF MEATS AND VEGETABLES IN SEASON

.....AND SO MUCH MORE!

The recipes are reliable and practical with explicit, simple instructions to even include COOKING UTENSILS necessary in a kitchen.

Food is one of the most defining elements ofa culture. U.S. eating habits were notoriously bad up and down the social spectrum. Food quality was poor, cooking was an enormous job, and table manners were atrocious.

Before the Victorian Era, food preservation techniques such as salting, pickling, drying, and smoking had changed little. The theory of canning was first developed in the 18th century with "dried soups" that were made by reducing stocks to a "glue" that could be reconstituted when needed, but they never attained much popularity outside the Navy. However, by the 1880s, largely in response to Pasteur's theories about disease and putrefaction, scientists experimented with chemicals to kill germs and bacteria in food. These early attempts often proved fatal to those who ate the "preserved" food, but legislation to control the use of chemicals for preserving food was not developed until 1901.

Contained within this volume are numerous chapters in ALL FOOD VARIETIES such as:

UTENSILS TO BE USED IN THE KITCHEN

SOUPS
