Kentucky's Cookbook Heritage

John van Willigen

University Press of Kentucky

Cookbooks of this era employed the modern recipe format (a separate ingredients list followed by instructions) advocated by the domestic science movement. Domestic science espoused a greater concern for nutrition and the use of standard measurements. Although there were some important community cookbooks published in this period, there were also many single-author cookbooks, including the first Kentucky cookbook published by an African American author.

Keywords:   domestic science, African American cookbooks, measurement, recipe formats
