I just had to see how recipes so old would transfer over. I was drawn more to the little book (with copies of the interior of actual handwritten recipes) as not a cookbook but a history book.

And I wasn't disappointed! It took a bit of research to learn what certain ingredients were, not to mention meas

Nice short read

I feel the recipes are a bit obscure and from the sounds in the directions, are rather a bit scattered..
