Community cookbook, 1922, complied by the Genesee Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Some interesting versions of recipes from early twentieth century home menus. Veal loaf, mustard pickles, chicken a la king (actually sounds pretty good), oatmeal muffins, and lemon cream pudding.
There is an early scattering of prepared ingredients—Campbell’s Tomato Soup being a particular favorite—but most of the cooking is from scratch, including, not surprisingly, a good, hearty tomato soup. We must confess to having been particularly taken by a divinity fudge made with Grape Nuts.
The 96-page book has a light cardboard cover wrapped around a stapled book block. There are many local advertisements, as well as some for national brands such as The Garland Stove—offering an enamel cabinet gas range for $48.50.
The copy is in good, clean condition internally and the cover is quite presentable. It has pulled loose of the staples in front and back but is still attached at the spine.
