I've always loved Fannie Farmer's straightforward instructions. Recently I found a children's book, FANNIE IN THE KITCHEN, that tells how Fannie Merritt Farmer may have gotten started in cooking as a mother's helper. I never realized Farmer suffered from polio or a stroke as a teenager, which made her "unmarriageble" in those days. It's fascinating to look back at how roles for women opened up during and after the Civil War, and Fannie is no exception.

Although we have grown up believing that Fannie Farmer was the pioneer of standardized measurements, her classic "Original" Boston Cooking-School Cook book was in fact a re-editing of the "Boston Cooking School Cook Book" by Mary Lincoln. Mary Lincoln founded the Boston Cooking School and later hired Fannie Farmer to be its principal. Those interested in the history of cook books and recipies should get both of these reprints to compare. Either one are great to get a window on how it was done in days of wood stoves and early ideas of nutrition.
