CARRIE SHUMAN - FAVORITE DISHES : A COLUMBIAN COOKERY BOOK

First Edition

1893

"Fried Mush. From Mrs. George Hoxworth, of Arizona, Alternate Lady Manager. Three pints boiling water; one cup wheat flour; enough corn meal to make stiff batter. Fry while hot in plenty of grease. Think it more convenient than the old way and much better. A tablespoon of sugar added makes it brown better." An example of the over three hundred recipes written by the board of women managers of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, a celebration of the 400th year of Columbus’ landing in the new world. Photographic portraits of some of the key contributors and line drawing illustrations are interspersed throughout the book. Many of the recipes are quite unfamiliar to the contemporary palate. An attractive decorated mustard cloth cover.
