Manual of cooking, diet, home management & care of children for housekeepers who must conduct their homes with economy, originally prepared in 1917. A fascinating collection of old recipes, and much of the common sense advice would still be very applicable today.
As the author said: "Economizing on food is a most dangerous thing to try unless the housekeeper has an understanding of food values. She must know what foods are necessary for the health of her family and in what food materials she gets the most for her money, to be able to decide where it is wise and safe to cut and where unsafe." The book was originally published by the American School of Home Economics.
Florence Nesbitt was field supervisor and dietician for the Department of Relief of the Juvenile Court of Chicago, lecturer for the Chicago Visiting Nurses' Association, and formerly visiting housekeeper of the United Charities of Chicago.
