Product Description

About the Author

Farmer was an American authority on cookery, born in Boston. She received her early education in Medford, Massachusetts, and graduated from the Boston Cooking School, of which she was a director from 1892 to 1902. In the latter year she founded Miss Farmer's School of Cookery, Boston, with the purpose of instructing housewives and nurses in the art of cookery, rather than training prospective domestic science teachers.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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.

HASH(0xa6c13ad4) out of 5 stars Original hardback Feb. 28 2015
By Sandra Tambash - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have THE original hardback, which belonged to my grandmother. I treasure it. Although, it is not in good condition all the pages are there. What's fun about it is the number of pages of advertising from companies such as Gorton's ( Gorton-Pew Fisheries Co.), Fleischmann's Yeast, King Arthur Flour, and Baker's Cocoa ( Walter Baker & Co. Ltd.) to name a few.
HASH(0xa6c1cd74) out of 5 stars This is a fun book, basic Nov. 6 2015
By FRAN Q.R - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fun book , basic, easy to read and easy to follow when cooking. I do recommend. I originally saw the book when quoted with a recipe in a local newspaper, griddle cakes on a wood stove. I am enjoying.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Everything went nice and easy I just was a little bit disapointed with the print quality of that classic. A book like that diserves a hardcopy not a paperback
