The New England Cook Book: The Latest and the Best Methods for Economy and Luxury at Home
This book features both an entertaining collection of recipes (which quickly become stories in themselves) and a fascinating slice of life from a century ago. Egg yolks are "yelks," there are not one, but two "mock turtle" recipes that require the scalding and cleaning of a calf's head (don't ask about the tongue) and everything is cooked over fire—live, wood-burning fire.
