A Year of Encyclopedic Cookery in Review

Here we are at the end of the year, twelve volumes later. The Encyclopedia of Cookery has worn well this year! First, a huge thank you to my partner, who carried us through the tough times when I was too tired/stressed/uninspired/sick/busy to cook anything. This has really been a joint project.

This has been a wonderful adventure into cooking techniques and foodways of 50 years ago. It has been, by turns, challenging, amusing, scary, puzzling, and, most days, delicious. My favorite, hands down, is the Blueberry Betty from volume 1. Candidates for further favorites include the Frikadeller, East Indian Marinated Lamb Chops, and the last volume’s Yam Spicecake. We hope you’ve enjoyed reading about these recipes, and that you are inspired to seek out the Encyclopedia and try these, and other, recipes from our mothers’ and grandmothers’ day. Happy cooking, and happy sharing with others.
