Overview

Incredibly popular and long-lasting, this has been one of the most enduring cookbooks in American history. The book was only loosely connected to the White House when it was first published in 1887. By this edition, 1899, "interesting information is given concerning the White House, how its hospitality is conducted, the menus served on special occasions, views of the interior, portraits of all the ladies of the White House, etc." The book has been republished, in whole or in part, numerous times throughout the 20th century. Containing not only recipes, but also information on carving, the management of State dinners, table etiquette, household management (including a list of the items needed to run a kitchen), and "health suggestions," this is a comprehensive collection of the menus and recipes of the American and White House kitchen.
