Historical Recipes and Practices III

Just found this book in my club library that I found very interesting. The author is Geroge Leonard Herter and Berthe E Herter. It was printed in 1973 but the recipes go back to the beginning of time.
The photos were a part of history. The book is so interesting I have not stopped reading it. Could not believe they used cinnamon on fish and steak. Has anyone read this book?

Sueanne no I've not seen the book you speak of but it's amazing the herbs and spices we don't think will work together actually do.
The trick is to experiment and I try sometimes

Did not know that flat fish, halibut, flounder and sole have two eyes on one side of their head. They lay on their side with their eyes looking up at the bottom of the water. Years ago they only preferred that kind of fish.

I'm thinking what we call flat head is what you call flat fish.
They are a yummy fish we used to catch all the time as kids

Sueanne I love Halibut and flat fish...we used to fish for them all the time on the west coast...miss that where I am. I remember as a kid being fascinated by the eyes being all on one side

That cookbook sounds very interesting Sueanne will have to see if our library has it.
I like most kinds of fish. I like Red Snapper but hard to find around here

Happy face

Sueanne, please post the name of the cookbook. That would be interesting to see what kind of recipes are in it.

The name of the book is, "Bull Cook and Authentic Historical Recipes and Practices".

Took out some recipe cards to start writing down the ones that appeal to me.
The book does have some graphic stories and photos in it sexual of course.
Love reading the Biographies of the people in it.
Will try and post some of the recipes later.
