The recipes are well laid out with a lot of history. It makes an excellent tool of discussion and education with students who are reading the series or families who enjoy watching re-runs of the tv show.
Some of the recipes don't adapt well to things you can easily get at the supermarket, but just reading those recipes is fun and modern cooks will find the difference in technique and ingredients very interesting. We are so used to being able to get so many alternative ingredients, to having 50 kinds of oil to choose from at the grocery store, that just the use of salt pork or bacon in so many common dishes is a good conversation. Being able to discuss cooking methods, economical measures, and working with what was available are all good things to explore with your children.
I got it as a way of encouraging my daughter to read the original series. It's hard getting her interested in novels sometimes, but she loves cookbooks and historical recipes. Using it that way has worked, she's been slowly going through the series and enjoying it.
Highly recommended for fans of the show or the books obviously, but also a good resource for people who enjoy reenacting history. Many of the recipes are accurate for the Civil War Era.
This book contains several recipes for items you see throughout the books, such as vanity cakes, the bread they ate during the Long Winter, cambric tea and my favorite, the maple sugar on snow.
