Alexander Hamilton: The Cookbook
This book includes a timeline of changes in cookery during the course of Hamilton's lifetime in addition to a brief biography of his life and times. It also includes information on how cooking was done in this era, which was particularly fascinating to a history enthusiast. With historical details, recipes, and advice on how to prepare and serve the dishes that our forefathers ate in their day, The Hamilton Cookbook transports you to Hamilton's home and to his table. You'll learn what he ate, his favorite dishes, and the manner in which his meals were presented to him. It's interesting how the older recipes have very vague instructions or ingredient measurements; it's almost as if the author thought all readers were experienced cooks.
