One really old cookbook with illustrations of various First Ladies. I saw this book once in the background of a movie portraying an old kitchen.
Contains household hints, care of the sick, etc. States copyright was 1899, possibly published in 1905. ( )

Oh no! With low-fat, no-fat, quick and great-tasting modern versions. At least these modern recipes face the originals. This is lucky, since many of the revised recipes bear almost no resemblance to the originals. Methinks they must have eliminated much of the original recipes to make room for these recipes though. The old book was NOT a thin volume! They have also spliced in modern recipes from Barbara Bush and Hillary Rodham Clinton. These are not improvements IMO, unless they interest more people in the older editions. [The White House Cook Book was originally published in 1894. I suppose, though, if more folks buy atrocities like this, it will be easier for others of us to obtain the older versions.

This book was originally written in 1887 but this is the 1894 edition. Written with recipes used at the White House but the book was written for the home cook. This is a exelent book to teach a child to cook. ( )
