Chip, you always crack me up.

I don't think I've ever had a pastie. I really need to go get something to eat now. If I keep reading this thread I'm going to wreak my diet!

Good to stop by here when one's eaten.:) I just over-indulged with a huge bowl of spaghetti pesto. We found a great source of fresh pesto at a local supermarket - they only put in the ingredients that ought to be in a good pesto (basil, parmiggiano [NOT pecorino, yuck], pine nuts [NOT cashew nuts), garlic, and olive oil).

I think it would be so cool to read a cookbook, too. I collect cookbooks and I absolutely love them When I get a new one, I literally read it from cover to cover, like I do a novel! :lol:

there are several cookbooks on Project Gutenberg... Patti, would you have some time to look at a few and make a selection .. I'm willing to coordinate a collaborative project if you'd like.

To find them in PG, go to http://www.gutenberg.org/catalog/ and search for the word Cookery in the Title box ... 19 to choose from =)

I'll have some time tomorrow to go and look at them and make a selection, if you want. I never even thought about reading recipes, but it really is a great idea. I'm getting really excited about this!

oh, also, try searching for the word "recipe" or "cookbook" in the title box... you'll get a few more hits with that as well =)

Actually, I went to gutenberg.org tonight and I found several really neat cookbooks over there. I think "Domestic Cookery, Useful Receipts, and Hints to Young Housekeepers" by Elizabeth E Lea would be fun to do. What do you think?

looks like a good choice to me... Patti do you want to coordinate it? or would you like me to?

Here is the Gutenberg link to this 1845 work:
http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/9101

Yes, this is exciting =)

Here's one that I did some of the proof-reading on, "The Whitehouse Cookbook (1887) - The Whole Comprising a Comprehensive Cyclopedia For The Home". It's fascinating:

Actually, we have our house for sale so if (or when...have to be positive, right?) I probably won't be on for a little while. Of course, don't know when that will be but hopefully it will be soon! :lol: Another thing is we don't have high-speed internet and with dial up, it would just be a nightmare, I'm afraid. When we move (we're going to Billings, Montana) we will have high-speed. I will try my hand at coordinating a project, then, ok?
Also, since I've only recorded 3 Aesop Fables so far, I feel like I should have a little bit more experience with recording before I coordinate a project. That said, I'd love to have you coordinate it.
Thanks

Peter's selection is also interesting - didn't realise the Whitehouse of the title was the White House in Washington DC! Interesting section on State Dinners... and some good tips & recipes!

I went to gutenberg.org and read this Cookbook and it is fascinating. Maybe we could do this one too? I don't see why we couldn't have two cookbooks in the works at the same time. What do you think, Thistlechick?

One of the things I liked about the "Whitehouse" book was the small-household economies that the author describes. Seems an odd contrast considering that it was The White House, but I suspect it is coloured by the feeling of still being a "new" country, and colonial. .... In the same way as much of the underlying British pattern of behaviour can be traced to war-time, or further back to the industrial revolution. (We're only just starting to realise that a sausage doesn't *have* to be composed of 50% bread crumbs, plus a minced mess of the cheapest cuts of meat!)

We certainly can have as many cookbooks running as people are willing to coordinate ;) ... I've started dividing up the sections of Domestic Cookery and we can get started with that one soon =)
