This book has a lot of things that people have forgotten about in modern times. I've barely gone through a fraction of it, but it will tell you how to set a formal table, how to brine a beef brisket to make corned beef, how to make brine pickles, doughnuts, serve wine, and so much more. Originally written in 1901 as a compilation of European recipes, it was intended to enable someone with no prior knowledge to plan, prepare, and serve complete meals. My modern edition was printed in 1954, so you will not find any reference to microwave ovens. With extensive information on canning and preserving, this would be a good book for anyone who has a large garden or farm, or anticipates a rustic life style in the future.

One of the best cook books ever written. A treasure trove of recipes,tips and techniques being marginalized by the popularity of instant this and ready-to-eat,microwavable that. Written and revised from 1901 thru my 1954 edition and beyond for those of us young or old who value the nutrition,flexibility,thrift,safety,and fun of scratch-prepared foods.

It is wonderful. Teaches you everything your grandmother or mother didn't. Must have for all cooks. It teaches you definitions of "blanching" and other information even the novice cook or the veteran may not know or has been afraid to try. This edition is best because it's so old. Don't buy a newer edition.

As we lived in Wisconsin and as this book originated in Milwaukee, my mother had it, from the 1940's on. It was lost after her death, so I was delighted to find a copy on Amazon. My copy is a newer copy, but still the same delightful cook book. If you enjoy down to earth, old fashioned good cooking, then find a copy of the Settlement cook book for yourself.
