by Ella E Myers
Published in Philadelphia in 1876, this volume in the American Antiquarian Cookbook Collection provides information about recipes and other cultural information from the 100 years between 1776 and 1876, divided into four sections: Cookery, Medical Department, Farming and Agriculture, and Events, and was published to celebrate the nation’s first centennial.
1776-187: The Centennial Cook Book and General Guide contains over 1,000 recipes gathered by author Mrs. Ella E. Myers, who states in the preface, “To compile and issue a work of this kind that would be perfect, has been my particular aim, and, I believe that I have succeeded.” Myers confirms that “each and every” recipe has been “carefully analyzed and tested by me” to ensure the highest of quality. Furthermore, Myers also states that the recipes were designed to only use quantities and ingredients absolutely necessary, and because of this, will save readers significant money. Besides just recipes and frugality, the hefty tome also contains sections on medicinal cures, planting and farming, and historical events of Philadelphia.
