Chicago: Estes 1911
“Estes’ cookbook was not the first to be published by an African American – that would be Robert Roberts’ The House Servant’s Directory from 1827. But where Roberts publishes recipes for the wealthy New England families he’s accustomed to working for, Estes offers the recipes for foods he’s been eating his whole life. And what a life he had – born into slavery in 1857, a train porter with the Pullman Company, and eventually a chef. The incredible range of recipes includes everything from Southern Corncakes, Apple Slump and Rib Roast, to Candied Violets, Kedgeree, and Sheep’s Brains with Small Onions.”

Farmer, Fannie Merritt
Boston: Little, Brown 1896
“It is thanks to Fannie Farmer that we have detailed, step-by-step instructions in cookbooks that use standardized measurements for ingredients. Emerging at the height of the domestic science movement in the United States that sought consistency and uniformity in cooking practices, Farmer revolutionized the cook.book industry. Just as later writers such as Julia Child or Harold McGee, Fannie Farmer didn’t just explain how to do something, she explained why – describing in some cases the chemical processes that make a recipe work.” – Eric Colleary, “The American Table” website.

West & Johnston
Richmond, VA: West & Johnston 1863
“Even the most frugal cooks found it difficult to put food on the table under the Confederacy. Naval blockades prevented most foods from reaching the South, who was more used to growing cotton and tobacco than food. Cooks needed to adapt their recipes to what was readily available, and this booklet offered suggestions such as adding starchy rice or potatoes to breads to reduce the amount of flour needed. It was printed in Richmond, Virgina on polka-dot wallpaper since regular paper was in short supply.”- Eric Colleary, “The American Table” website. Cooking books pdf free download, cookery book pdf.
