Who has a Fannie Farmer cookbook?

If you do, which version do you have?


I currently have this one:

Things I didn't know.

This is her:

She's from Boston.
She contracted polio preventing her from going to college as a young woman, she went to the local cooking school instead and became it's principal.

Her cookbook introduced the "new" standardized measuring methods.
She had a lecture at Havard Medical School about nutrition.

Yeah, I know, everybody has a ton of cookbooks lurking but I find it funny that so many people still buy this one after 100 years. I bought mine because my aunt (rip) had one and somehow it got in my head it was supposed to be a staple in the home.



Disclaimer: I watched a doc where they prepared a 12 course meal from her original publication, coming as close as possible to how they cooked such meals 100 years ago. Down to the type of stove, even making their gelatin from boiling bones. I will tell you, I will never, ever make such a meal. It looked delicious, but the work.

i watch anthony bourdain and gordon ramsey regularly. i een watched snoop dogg and martha stewart. cooking shows are fun, but actually cooking isn't so much. just my 2c boxed that being said, i just made a yummy mushroom and cheese omelette, on one of the burners that isn't inhabited by a houseplant
