4.0 out of 5 stars Historic Cuisine! November 28, 2011
By Ana M.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you have any interest in reading about how people used to eat and cook, then it's a very nice easy read that will amuse and also provide insight on the growth of food preparation when you compare the ingredients and techniques to how you cook today.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing February 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just a list of books. Very few have recipes. I was hoping for old different recipes. What I found was mostly trite hackneyed Jello salads and green bean cassaroles from the fifties. The older recipes I did find had totally nebulous measurements i.e. 2 tosses of flour or a fist of sugar. Many had no amounts just a list of ingredients. A few were interesting however very few.

I was hoping to also see recipes but the information on old cookery books was interesting. If you are a cookbook addict like I am, you are going to enjoy this.
