  Wonderful book , 08/19/2005
Reviewer: Edith Elizabeth Pollitz
Reviewed by: (3/10/2004) This is certainly one of the most unusual cookbooks published! The major portion of this book follows a neat design -- recipe from a famous person (actually, usually from the wife or mother of the famous person) followed by a very brief sketch of the individual's life. ... For those with an insatiable appetite for Civil War cooking or to find out what the rich and famous of the 1800s put in their mouths, this book serves a purpose

I especially enjoyed reading the biographical sketckes following each historical recipe. Tried quite a number of these recipes and have not yet been disappointed. They are wonderful. This book would surely make a most exciting Christmas gift for those who already think they have everything.

  Terrific! , 01/08/2006
Reviewer: Kristie Lynn
All can say is that this is truly a marvelous book. It's pure dynamite and the historicasl part should be required reading in every school in America. The book is fabulous and should also be used as a teaching aid in home schooling. It covers historical facts most of which aren't found in school texts. I've never seen anyhing even close to this approach.
