Volume 2 in the ultimate retro cookbook series filled with hundreds of antique recipes restored for future generations.

Before the supermarket, online ordering, and celebrity chefs, people created delicious meals in an old-time kitchen. The CGR Publishing Restoration Workshop and World’s Fair historian Mark Bussler presents a curated collection of old-fashioned recipes for cooks and chefs of all skill levels looking to travel back into culinary time. Features:

  • More than 500 antique recipes from the 19th century
  • Valuable old-fashioned cooking techniques
  • Easy starter recipes like breakfast dishes and sauces
  • Advanced recipes, pickling, pastry, fish, and more
  • Sections on meats, poultry, pork, eggs, puddings, cakes, and confectionery
  • Antique home remedies, lessons on social behaviors from the late 1800s, and cosmetics
  • Full-size 8 1/2″ x 11″ pages
  • Old fashioned weathered type font
  • Restored, old-time illustrations

The modern food and beverage industry dates back to the displays of canning and preserves at the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. What was new and life-changing for visitors to the Columbian Exposition has, more than a century later, sterilized modern cooking practices and damaged both flavor and the environment.

Based on a 19th-century manuscript restored and edited by the CGR Publishing Restoration Workshop (Dante’s Inferno: Retro Hell-Bound Edition, Milton’s Paradise Lost: Gustave Doré Retro Restored Edition,) the Old Time Kitchen antique cookbook restores and preserves more than 500 classic recipes of meats, vegetables, puddings, confectionaries, wines, pickles, herbs, made meals, and more.
