@Regrann from @fisherlibrary - This appliance is marketed as 'invaluable by ladies who choose to take an active share in the cooking done in the house'. Some of the cookbooks in our collection were put out by manufacturers to advertise their product and its uses. London gas distributors hired the wife of the manufacturer of this gas kitchener to write The art of cooking by gas. It features recipes that use the new technology as well as seasonal menus. Mock turtle, anyone? The art of cooking by gas by Marie Jenny Sugg. London : Cassell & Co., 1890. #cookery #food #technology #recipes #rarebooks #foodhistory #culinaryhistory@pochove - #regrann
