I have a index card holder FULL of hand written recipes from the chics in our family ... guessing the chics in the family new I would use them, seeing that I spent quite a few "hours" watching them prep meals at grandmas and aunties houses .... they would get me to "help" by grating cheese or peeling potatoes or mixing masa .... they were slick .. had a sous chef at their finger tips and took advantage .. LOLToo many to count...mostly for the novelty, but I have the one my mother learned out of and one that was my grandmother's.
There's pros and cons to both sides. We have newer appliances, but who would know more about using the old ones that those who cooking on them for generation after generation, making meals from simple ingredients. While we may have newer cooking methods such as pressure cooking, it'll be hard to find a better source of cooking in dutch ovens or cast iron skillets than the old books. Things like microwaves and convection ovens might be new, but how many will be able to use them when the power is out?Older is not better( except for collector value)......with the advancement of cooking appliances.......cooking has improved........it's trendy at best. My DW is working on a cookbook for just the Deni. There's cookbooks for just the microwave, etc. Cooking is basically heating food to a certain temp( to kill critters) and seasoning. IMo, the more folks cook, the worse it gets ( no, Curry does NOT go with 5 spice, etc).
SWEET ... gonna search for that title ... thanks for the share ... :thumb:My wife has her grandmothers old cookbook printed in 1942. "Woman's Home Companion Cook Book". It has a lot of recipes based on the Depression and Rationing of WW2. All are scratch recipies.
