This book was copyrigthed in 1913 and published by the N. K. Fairbank Company. They made a shortening product called Cottolene (beef tallow and cottonseed oil). This cookbook was distributed to help promote that product. It contains a nice introduction about why the book was written, the "benefits" of cottolene and some basic cooking info such as how to measure and how long to cook things.

There is a complete menu for each Sunday in the year. Back then Sunday dinner (mid-day meal) was a big affair for many families. This does seemed to be aimed at the more well to-do families since there are recipes for oysters, crabs, and exotic fruits. The recipes are well written but lack in the area of oven temps and times...back then that varied based on how hot your oven fire was. Some of the recipes do look worth trying. Even if you don't cook from it, if you enjoy reading cookbooks, I think you will enjoy this one.

The book is very well formatted on the Kindle and includes hyperlinks. I just wish there was a table of contents.

Years ago a dear friend gave me this antique book. It is a perfect snapshot of cooking at the turn of the century. I was delighted to find it on amazon. Someone was displeased because the book was not pratical for today.... It is a sponsered cook book by a company that produces "cottolene". It is so fun to read the thoughts about fats 100 years ago versus today. I love to read old cookbooks and this one is a gem.

Not my cup of tea. Did not care for this book at all. Recipes...formatting...nothing. i think it was free and i looked at it and sent it right back. Guess you could say .... you get what you pay or don't pay for. Don't waste your time or energy.

Jump start your menu planning. Stuck with the same old fare? This will tell you how to make dumplings, quennelles and other stuff you have seen but not made from scratch.

If you are looking for having something completely different on each Sunday, this book might be your solution. I downloaded this for free through my Kindle Prime membership and found it to have some good recipes in it.

I like that there is a time table for breads, cakes and puddings, as well as baking meats. This is something that you rarely find in a cook book anymore. There are also suggested freezing, frying, broiling, and boiling times.

You are going to find extremely large menus though out the book and complex recipes like Chantilly Apple Sauce and Roasted Goose. I'm not really much for "fancy" meals with not have much time to cook anymore.

If you are looking for a book of recipes than this is not the book for you. This is a fun read about what dinner was like 100 years ago.

I haven't tried the whole book but what i have tried everyone liked. Some of these recipes i find that my grandmother used to make them or a spin off of them when was little.
