The Book of Corn Cookery
By Mary L. Wade. ISBN 978-0-914875-48-2. Copyright 1917. Softcover with 105 pages including index.
First published in 1918, the “Book of Corn Cookery” was written to help win World War I. With wheat in short supply for the troops, alternative sources of grain were needed to feed the folks at home, and corn was the answer. With 150 recipes for the use of corn and corn meal, this historic cookbook has as much to offer to families of today as it did in decades past. Ranging from breads, muffins and desserts to meat, fish and soups, there is something delicious for everyone in this book.
