Allied Cookery

Allied Cookery
As an avid chef and the person in charge of the Hill 70 blog, I decided to find a way to combine my passions for food and history! I'll be blogging my way through 70 recipes from Allied Cookery: British, French, Italian, Belgian, Russian by Grace Clergue Harrison and Gertrude Clergue.

The book, compiled and sold as a fundraiser to "aid the war sufferers in the devastated districts of France," is prefaced by Stephen Leacock and Ella Wheeler Wilcox, and introduced by the "Président du Comité France-Amérique" Raoul Dandurand. It contains recipes from bouillabaise to roast oysters, and Leg-of-Mutton Pie to Brioche de la Lune.

You can follow along with the cookbook in the Boston Public Library archive here, and share the taste of life on the homefront with me!
