From the Back Cover:

Here is a recreation of the first American cookbook. A historic book, the first to document the unique New World cuisine, it deserves an honored place in every cookbook collection. Published in 1796, the little best-seller with the big title set down the first rules for Pumpkin Pie, Cranberry Sauce with Turkey, and Indian Pudding. Author Amelia Simmons' receipts for a Cheap Seed Cake, a Sick Bed Custard, and Soft Cakes in Little Pans transport the reader to another place, a gentler time. But more than a cookbook, its pages are filled with asides on the virtuous female character, wise marketing, a solution for reducing the national debt and more Americana, dear and droll.

In her Introduction, Iris Ihde Frey takes the reader on a tour of a Colonial kitchen and her high tech Connecticut kitchen. Her Sampler of Updated Recipes preserves all the good flavor of the originals, but adapts them to quick, easy preparation.


The book by itself would be fun reading, but it becomes useful with the addition of an introduction and updated recipes by Iris Ihde Frey, a cookbook author of great charm and wit. Frey's work makes this new edition of Amelia Simmons' American classic a joy to own and use. Complete with Amelia Simmons' old-fashioned and sometimes odd spellings, it should have a place in the library of every active and armchair cook. -- The Chicago Sun-Times
