Unused clean, tight, square, and bright copy bound in brown cloth with gilt title on spine, with 1" black marker stripe on top page edges, else fine. Dust jacket is unclipped, pristine, and protected in mylar. First edition. Examines two cookbooks from 18th century Virginia. Cookbooks from this period contained recipes, medical cures, and housekeeping information, making them important social history documents. Harbury's textual analysis establishes a relationship between these two early manuscripts and links them to the 1824 classic "The Virginia House-wife." She finds that colonial cooks continued British culinary traditions, but the emergence of a distinct Virginia foodway began as early as 1700. 479 pages includes index, endnotes, original recipes.

Über diesen Titel


More diverse in scope than their modern counterparts, the cookbooks of colonial and antebellum America contained recipes, medical cures, and housekeeping information that women of that time deemed necessary for family life. The keepers of these domestic manuals recorded recipes and cures for their own use and the use of friends, daughters, and extended families. Because they reflect a range of daily living practices, such manuscript cookbooks serve as important social history documents. In Colonial Virginia's Cooking Dynasty, Katharine E. Harbury brings to light two cookbooks from eighteenth-century Virginia. Notable for their early dates and historical significance, these manuals afford previously unavailable insights into lifestyles and foodways during the evolution of Chesapeake society. One cookbook is an anonymous work dating from 1700; the other is the 1739-1743 cookbook of Jane Bolling Randolph, a descendant of Pocahontas and John Rolfe. In addition to her textual analysis that establishes the relationship between these two early manuscripts, Harbury links them to the 1824 classic The Virginia House-wife by Mary Randolph. Harbury provides an introduction to and analysis of

From the Inside Flap:

"Katharine E. Harbury offers us two more manuscript recipe books from the famous Randolph families of Virginia with the publication of Colonial Virginia's Cooking Dynasty. But more importantly and uniquely, Harbury has given us the social, economic, and political context into which they fit, creating a new pattern for future transcriptions. She makes a convincing case for the existence of a distinct gentry culture that finally turned its gaze firmly westward to form a new society in North America, with people who became Virginians instead of Englishmen living abroad. This they did in their grand new homes, dining rooms, kitchens, and with the food they served prepared from these cookbooks."—Sandy Oliver, publisher/editor, Food History News
