Fannie in the Kitchen

Fannie in the Kitchen: The Whole Story from Soup to Nuts of How Fannie Farmer Invented Recipes with Precise Measurements
By Deborah Hopkinson and Nancy Carpenter

Fannie Farmer is a kitchen servant in 1880s Massachusetts who prepares amazingly delicious meals for little Marcia Shaw's family. How does she create these tasty miracles? Marcia convinces her to write down the "recipes" — thus creating one of the world's first cookbooks. Warm, witty, and whimsical with period etchings and engravings.
