This volume written by Deborah Peterson, formerly the proprietress
of Deborah Peterson's Pantry, is filled with primary source
information, 30-plus period receipts (recipes), and many color
supports many food-related imports into eighteenth-century Philadelphia.
Each entry gives brief documentation showing it was here in
the colonies. If the item is unusual, a receipt (or recipe as
we call them now) using the ingredient is supplied. (It's great
to find food-quality Isinglass, but it begs the question, now
what do I do with it? A receipt is helpfully provided!)
If you want to learn more about spices, coffee, tea, chocolate,
syrups, hartshorn, leavenings, isinglass, gums, sugar, salts,
peppers, oils, you should have this book! A great gift for any
foodie! Useful to have in any site's library!
