Standard paper-bag cookery by Emma Paddock Telford
Published originally in 1912, this volume aims to provide housewives with an economic and labor-saving manner for creating delicious family meals. Simplicity and frugality are emphasized throughout. An early forerunner of today's popularity of food cooked in parchment, many of the recipes can be easily reproduced today, and would make interesting meals for time- and budget-crunched families. The included seasonal menus look positively modern and not that different from menus that can be found in current cookbooks.
