|This is not from book|
Sunday, March 3, 2013
Every Sunday I am going to post an important recipe or entertaining tip from one of my antique cookbooks.
I love antique cookbooks! Not only for the recipes which at times seem more like science experiments, but for the advice about entertaining and taking proper care of your family. I read these books like an archaeologist uncovering the lost world of the domestic goddesses.
This week’s selection is from Anyone Can Bake published in 1927 by the Royal Baking Powder Company.
I have chosen page number 6 and 7.
I don't know about you, but this is how I set my table for Christmas dinner. I don't even think that my son knows how to use a fork. Forget using multiple forks? Cloth napkins? Butter plates? Can you imagine setting a breakfast table like this for your family every morning? My kids are happy with a bowl of cereal at our mail covered kitchen table. Maybe I should freak them out this week with a pretty table set for breakfast? But I will leave off the Asbestos and the butter curl.
