If you’ve ever wished you could create a meal like your grandmother used to make, then the Genesee County Cook Book is the resource for you. Compiled and published in 1918 by the Woman’s Missionary Society of the Presbyterian Church of Corfu, New York, the cook book includes recipes for soups, fish, meats, relishes, entrees, salads, deserts, preserves, pickles and confectionary. Dessert recipes include several sections including puddings and sauces, pies, ice creams and ices, cakes, cookies, fried cakes, muffins and breads.
Recipes tucked within the pages range from timeless classics like chicken noodle soup, ginger bread cookies and elderberry pie to the more exotic like Yorkshire pudding, broiled pidgeons, or shredded wheat oyster patties.
This work, originally published in 1918, is reprinted by Milne Library at the State University of New York College at Geneseo as part of the Genesee Valley Historical Reprints series. The Genesee Valley Historical Collection is Milne Library’s largest and most accessible collection of local history materials. Its geographical scope covers the eight counties surrounding the Genesee River in New York State: Allegany, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Steuben and Wyoming.
