This vintage book contains a famous cookbook written by Fannie Farmer in the nineteenth-century. It is an extensive and comprehensive general reference cookbook which is still being reprinted and updated to this day. It is famous for a more rigorous approach to writing recipes than had been common up to that point, and is still a useful cooking resource for modern readers. Easy-to-digest and full of interesting recipes and handy tips, this book would make for a great addition to any collection of cooking literature. It is not to be missed by the discerning collector. Many antiquarian books such as this are increasingly rare and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern edition - complete with a specially commissioned introduction on home cooking.
