1908 · Amsterdam, NY
Third edition: an early 20th-century cookbook complied by the Guild of St. Anne's Church. Just when the first edition appeared seems to be lost in the mists of time, but the second edition appeared in 1899. Each recipe is accompanied by the name of the woman who provided the tasty addition.
Toad in a hole, cream raspberry pie and honey candy are a few of the recipes in this cookbook that covers salads, meats, desserts, and more. Some recipes include wine or liquor as an ingredient. The recipe for corn bread, provided by a very creative Lydia Millard, is written in rhyming verse.
Evidence of Readership: Several handwritten recipes are laid-in. The last eight blank pages have additional handwritten recipes on them.
WorldCat has located only one institutional copy (NYU).
