Koch Büch. Worin alles So zür Küchenmisterey gehörig zü finden. (ca. 1700)
In the Spring of 2016 we acquired this German manuscript cookbook, compiling several hundred recipes. The cookbook offers instructions for making dishes using game, various types of sausage, and many kinds of fish, including pike, eel and crayfish. Sweet dishes include marzipan, ginger bread, and desserts made from almonds, apples, pears, rum and dates. Also included are notes on the preparation of various waters. A charming watercolor in the Biedermeier style at the beginning of the cookbook depicts an elegantly dressed couple facing each other. Under the watercolor is a dedicatory inscription indicating that the manuscript was a wedding gift.
