An incredible culinary journey back in time.
Chicago’s White City Cookbook preserves 2000 recipes from the 19th century that were brought together by cooks at the 1893 World’s Fair! Discover some fabulous (and fabulously odd) recipes for meats, puddings, layer cakes, doughnuts, poultry, game, mushes and more!

The original printer first released this book in 1893 as The Home Queen World’s Fair Souvenir Cookbook. A group of 1893 World’s Fair managers collected recipes from all regions of the country and published them with images, photographs and additional tips about etiquette.

This incredible reprint preserves the original type font, images and adds some bonus recipes from the early 20th century in a surprising way.

Restored by World’s Fair historian and writer, Mark Bussler (Expo: Magic of the White City and The World’s Fair of 1893 Ultra Massive Photographic Adventure Series), all fans of historical cooking, reenactment cooking and the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago should love this massive tome of recipes.
