On February 22, Bartleby.com (last mentioned in the January 28, 2000 Scout Report
) announced its latest release: the 1918 edition of the Boston Cooking-School Cook Book,
later known as the Fanny Farmer Cookbook.
Written by the director of the Boston Cooking School, Fannie Farmer (1857-1915), this landmark, no-nonsense cookbook aimed at the ordinary person has sold over 4 million copies internationally. Bartleby selected the 1918 edition because it was the last edition authored completely by Farmer. The online version includes over 1,800 recipes and is browseable by chapter or subject index, or searchable by keyword. This classic work is not only interesting as a piece of culinary history, but it offers techniques and recipes that stand the test of time.
