Collected for the benefit of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Perry, N.Y. by a group of eight women under the direction of a Mrs. W.H. McClelland, this cookbook is chock-full of brief (but good) recipes for a variety of dishes. Each section is prefaced with a culinary aphorism, such as Eggs (“In thy concoction there was common sense.”) and Candies (“Sweets to the sweet!”), and interspersed throughout are advertisements for domestic products from both local and national businesses.
