This is definitely NOT a book for modern cooking or baking. The historical facts on chocolate
are quaint and interesting, but the measurements given (such as "gills" of water) are not common
cooking terms these days. Some of the recipes call for raw egg whites that are not safe to eat, so
you'd have to substitute meringue powder. I have a lot of other modern cookbooks which have
updated recipes for most of the items, so if you are an experienced cook you'll recognize them
right away and know how to proceed. If you are not familiar with a particular recipe, I'd
recommend looking up on line and going from there.

Having read it, I think that this book is a good freebie for "foodies". It seems to be an advertising
tool for Walter Baker and Co. chocolate (it's mentioned continually throughout the book) but you
get some insight on early 20th century kitchen practices and tastes. I probably won't try to make
anything straight from this book as it's written. Just read it for a different take on history. It
makes me imagine how hard my great-grandmother had to work in her kitchen!!

By J. Stanbury :
Though I assumed this to be an older cookbook, I still found the format to be challenging to use.
I'm sure it is useable for those who have the patience and time to sort out the ingredients from
within the text, but for myself I found it too cumbersome a style for this spoiled modern
cookbook reader. I hope this helps you decide if you want to download the book and if you are
one of the patient types please let me know how you did it!
