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.

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.

This book gives you the recipes with a no nonsense way of doing the book. Plus it tells you who added them to this book. Pleasantly pleased with it but it lacks a table of contents to aid in faster use of this book.

This book had a variety of different recipes to try out. The format was a little difficult to follow; however, quite a few of the recipes looked interesting. It is a favorite thing of mine to try out different recipes and this book will deliver.

I saw this under "free kindle books" and had to see it. I love old cook books and this one is a treasure. If you are looking for modern cooking you may be disappointed, but if you like historical cooking recipes, you will like this. Think Downton Abbey with Mrs. Patmore with her fear of modern appliances and you will be on the right track. There is a handy index in the back, or by kindle standards at the end of the book, that is very handy. Such lovely old recipes! I am very pleased with this book.

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.
