Children's Literature
This cookbook for contemporary children explains everything from a pioneer's point of view. In the 1800s your cow, your vegetable garden, and the forest were equivalent to today's grocery stores. Open fires and fireplaces preceded our modern ranges and ovens. After describing basic differences in food gathering and preparation, the authors offer some basic safety tips and cooking terms for beginners. Then different types of pioneer foods are presented in the context of when they would be eaten and how they would be prepared. Recipes are provided for a variety of dishes. My Irish Soda Bread didn't resemble today's fluffy white bread at all, but was crusty and dense and fast to prepare. Brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins made the German Baked Apples a good after-dinner treat. Part of the "Historic Communities" series, this book could be used in the classroom to encourage some fun and edible "hands on" homework about 19th century living. 2001, Crabtree Publishing, $20.60 and $7.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Chris Gill
