Overview

A complete black and white reproduction of the 1925 to 1930 Wrought Iron Range Home Comfort Cook Book with a new introduction by Ross Bolton.

Humorous as it is useful, it features over 1000 recipes or suggestions on how to cook, which really gets to the heart of this historical period. Also included is a brief history of the company and a pictorial parts list.

This book was their biggest sales tool as people would keep the books for all the information it had in it. This edition was from around 1925, before it was revised in 1938 into a joyless mass by Irma Rombauer, author of the The Joy of Cooking.

Although the last Wrought Iron Range was produced in 1959 due to the electrification of America, the recipes contained in this book are just as exciting and useful as Betty Crocker or Better Homes and Gardens cook book is today.
