  • This treasure trove of anecdotes and nuggets of historical information about cookery in the Show-Me State draws from more than 150 publications to reveal Missouri's cookbook heritage and to deliver a generous sampling of recipes. The Fishers scoured libraries and historical societies to find handwritten family recipe collections and mimeographed publications as well as glossy color editions. Cookbooks covered include such curiosities as the Julia Clark Household Memoranda Book from the William Clark papers, an 1880 production by the Ladies of St. Louis called My Mother's Cookbook, Mary Foote Henderson's Practical Cooking and Dinner Giving, and Albert E. Brumley's All-Day Singin' and Dinner on the Ground. Festival cookbooks, company cookbooks, even cookbooks tied to world events--they're all here in one delightful book and its extensive bibliography.
