Description

This charming cookbook full of “receipts” was privately printed by Miss Mumford in 1905. Unlike many recipe books from the time period, there is a lot of detail about ingredients and amounts. The author states in a note that she felt the recipes were worth passing down through the generations. There are some gems here, but the fun of reading it is in descriptions such as “boil a chicken to pieces” and names like “Meat Jelly for Invalids” and “ChowChow.” The Genesee Valley Cook Book provides valuable insight into turn-of-the-century upstate New York households and lives.
