I won this on goodreads.

A century of brief historical facts and recipes that capture the spirit of the time. Fun to read and loaded with tasty recipes. I've filled my copy with post-its and given it to my husband with the instructions to "start cooking baby!"

Totally not what I expected.

And the recipes are mostly not something people other than chefs would cook--far ...more

Most of the recipes were a little fussy for me ...more

Interesting idea, one recipe per year by different chefs. Some are over the top both in ingredients and cooking methods/time for me. Fun to look at. I might try a few.
