About this product
- DescriptionThis amazing piece of folk history was originally published in 1896 amidst a colonial revival frenzy that swept America's eastern seaboard in the 1890s. Determined to preserve American colonial cooking, Margaret Hooker collected quaint and curious recipes and remedies that appear to have come from old and reliable sources ranging from the mid-1700s to the mid-1800s. Her 226 original illustrations of cooking utensils give us a glimpse of colonial America as seen through the eyes of a young artist and teacher of 1896. This fun book includes recipes, beauty secrets, etiquette, candle making, and household hints, written in 18th century 'long S'-style print.
- Author BiographyMargaret Huntington Hooker was born in 1868 in Rochester, New York, and was one of six children. Margaret was an eighth gneration descendant of the Rev. Thomas Hooker, one of the founders of Connecticut. She compiled this book of colonial cooking at the end of the 19th century.
