Primitive Cookery is another quality reproduction period cookbook we've added to our collection. Originally printed in 1767, this is an 18th century cookbook with a vegetarian emphasis. By modern standards, this 80-page cookbook promotes an Ovo-Lacto (including eggs and dairy products) vegetarian diet although some of the recipes do contain meat. It also lists 70 economical recipes for people of lesser means -- recipes which reportedly at the time did "not cost above two pence each." This edition is painstakingly reproduced using period-correct bindery techniques. A great library addition for anyone who prefers a vegetarian diet, or simply for anyone who collects cookbooks. Handcrafted in the USA.

Great Collection of Vegetable Based Recipes
I love the history of cooking and historic recipes, this is fantastic vegetable based recipe book! Eggs are included in many recipes if that is important to you. As with all antique recipes the measurements are mostly up to you (not a criticism, just a note for people unfamiliar with this kind of cookbook). Beautifully reprinted in the antique font. Recipes for puddings, casseroles, fritters, beers, pies, dumplings, soups and more! Useful, informative and a fun slice of history! Review by Little Bunny Sunshine (Posted on 6/23/2018)
