From the Back Cover:

Here is a recreation of the first American cookbook. A historic book, the first to document the unique New World cuisine, it deserves an honored place in every cookbook collection. Published in 1796, the little best-seller with the big title set down the first rules for Pumpkin Pie, Cranberry Sauce with Turkey, and Indian Pudding. Author Amelia Simmons' receipts for a Cheap Seed Cake, a Sick Bed Custard, and Soft Cakes in Little Pans transport the reader to another place, a gentler time. But more than a cookbook, its pages are filled with asides on the virtuous female character, wise marketing, a solution for reducing the national debt and more Americana, dear and droll.

In her Introduction, Iris Ihde Frey takes the reader on a tour of a Colonial kitchen and her high tech Connecticut kitchen. Her Sampler of Updated Recipes preserves all the good flavor of the originals, but adapts them to quick, easy preparation.

Review:

The book by itself would be fun reading, but it becomes useful with the addition of an introduction and updated recipes by Iris Ihde Frey, a cookbook author of great charm and wit. Frey's work makes this new edition of Amelia Simmons' American classic a joy to own and use. Complete with Amelia Simmons' old-fashioned and sometimes odd spellings, it should have a place in the library of every active and armchair cook. -- The Chicago Sun-Times
