The Open-Hearth Cookbook: Recapturing the Flavor of Early America

In stock

Authors Suzanne Goldenson and Doris Simpson explain the art of building a good cooking fire and maintaining the three basic temperatures -- low, medium, and high -- needed to prepare almost all foods, and suggest ways to keep the hearth clean and the cook safe. Each chapter on technique tells how things were done in the old days, and then goes on to demontrate techniques for today. The authors have added substantial new material since the original publication in 1982 and have completely updated the resources section of the book.
