Place and time dictated what your ancestors ate, just as they control our food choices. This book is part history--telling about food choices at different places and time--as well as commonly used cooking terms whose meanings are difficult to know. For example, if a recipe calls for 1 saltspoon of salt, how much is that for modern cooks? Or how many eggs are in a pound of eggs? Avena is what grain? If a recipe calls for homard, what are you going to use? The answer to these questions and many more are in this 207-page book. The last section of the book are for your favorite recipes as well as memories associated with them.
