This is no ordinary cookbook. It's the first American-written cookbook published in the U.S., and it reflects the cooking techniques, eating habits and archaic language that were all the rage back in the 18th century.
Impress your friends with tasty dinners and a savvy dollop of history as well. Get ready for stew pies, roast mutton, Johnny cakes and spruce beer-guaranteed to be as delish today as they were for wig-wearing new Americans. Get down with dinner, colonial America-style.
This facsimile of the first American-written cookbook published in the United States is not only a first in cookbook literature, but a historic document. It reveals the rich variety of food enjoyed by Colonial Americans: their tastes, recipes, cooking techniques, eating habits, and even their colorful language.
