1975 Shaker Cook Book Unique Recipes Vintage Cookbook
Not by Bread Alone by Caroline B. Piercy.

"This volume gathers time-tested Shaker recipes for Beverages & Breads through to Vegetables & A Special Diet for Aged...Just as important, THE SHAKER COOK BOOK provides the heart-warming, "old-fashioned" ideas about food which made their communal kitchens known throughout the land."

A great collection of recipes gathered from Shaker communities. Caroline B. Piercy has done her homework and presents here, besides simply recipes, lots of wonderful info on the Shaker lifestyle...one that espouses "genuine simplicity & good quality". The recipes are straight-forward and clear with usually easily available ingredients (remember ~ freshness is important), the skill level is easy to moderate (remember ~ be in the moment). The Shakers felt that food preparation was a service to God & made it a joyful, communal event (dinners could serve 10-100 people). That joy remains here in these tested, smaller-quantity recipes.

Charmingly illustrated, this 283 page 1975 edition is in excellent condition with most of the wear to the dust jacket. There are some light folds and discolorations.The 5.5" by 8.25" by 1" book itself is in great shape with no writing, marks, stains, folds or tears. There is some light age-toning. But overall, it is in very nice shape.

A lovely treasury of uniquely American dishes :)

A word about shipping rates & multiple item orders... While shipping is carefully calculated on each item to keep your delivery cost low, if you're interested in multiple items it may be possible to save more by combining shipping. Email me with the items you're interested in, & I will deactivate the listings while we work out a combined rate to ship the all the goods in the same box. If you purchase multiple items, the shipping charges will appear high because the shipping is calculated on each item individually. I will always contact you with an accurate shipping rate before we proceed and refund any overages to your Paypal account.
