About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The standard cook book, for practical housewives..

Description:

Uncommon and pleasingly comprehensive late 19th-century paperback cookbook covering both basics and fancy luxuries, from sandwiches to salmagundi ? mixed with a fair amount of aspirational yearning towards French influence. The front wrapper advises that this was Double No. 23 in the semi-weekly "Sunlight Series," published by subscription. Most recipes are individually attributed to one of the "two hundred practical and experienced housekeepers" who made contributions to the book, or to one of the professionals listed at the front, who include Paul Resal (the White House chef), Louis C. Zerega (chef at the Hotel Ponce de Leon), Miss Harriott T. Ward (a Boston cooking teacher), Mrs. S.T. Rorer (of cookbook fame), and many others. The recipes are illustrated with => in-text engravings of elaborate and lovely cake ornaments, soup tureens, bouillon cups, various types of fish, prepared dishes, etc.; each section has a decorative header. At the back of the book are general household, cleaning, and marketing tips, along with illustrated instructions on carving and on napkin folding. 8vo (19 cm, 7.5"). 314 pp.; illus. Brown, Culinary Americana, 3696. Publisher's color-printed wrappers; wrappers creased, front one with small square chip out of lower inner corner and short tear from upper edge, joints rubbed with some chipping near extremities ? still, both solid and attractive. Pages age-toned with occasional light spotting, some corners bumped. => An excellent (and delightfully illustrated) overview of American cookery at the time, both domestic and more elevated.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Standard Book of Recipes and Housewife s Guide: Comprising as Complete Cook Book, Practical Household Recipes, Aids and Hints for Household Decorations, the Care of Domestic Plants and Animals and a Treatise on Domestic Medicine To make a fire in a stove or range, take off the covers, brush out the ashes and knock all clinkers from the sides of the fire box. Open all the dampers. Bring sbav ings or paper, wood and coal. Cover the grate with shavings or loosely crumpled pieces of paper. Lay in crosswise small pieces of wood, and on top of these larger pieces, being careful to fill all the corners of the fire box. Leave spaces between for the passage of air, and light the fire from underneath. When the wood begins to burn put on coal, pressing the wood down to the grate; Add more coal after the first supply kindles. As soon as the fire burns freely close the back damper, and when the oven is hot close the front damper. Never allow the coal to come above the edge of the fire box. Every stove or range has, at least, two dampers; one to allow the air to pass up through the fire, another to allow the gas to escape up the chimney and to complete the circulation of air. When the oven is to be used, the dampers should be so regulated as to allow the heated air to pass around the oven. In making a fire one thing should be borne strictly in mind. Never pour coal - oil on the kindling to make it burn more freely or on the fire to give it new life. If you have it in View to do this you had better take poison at once, and avoid the more painful suicide of burning to death, which has been the fate of so many who had the habit of using this dangerous material. To keep the fire over night, close the front damper and leave the back one partly open; put on fresh coal and after it has kindled open the cooling doors to admit cold air over the fire. The stove is blackened to make it look well, to prevent it from rusting and to keep in the heat. Moisten the blacking with warm or cold water, making a paste about as thick as cream. Rub this over the stove while it is cold and polish with a soft brush after the fire is kindled. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
