The Shaker Cook Book
Caroline B. Piercy
The Shaker Cook Book: Not by Bread Alone
New York: Crown Publishers, 1953.
Shaker cooking has been famous since the Federal period, when the "kitchen sisters" devised the essential American way of feeding the families of their large communities.
Incorporating their technical innovations, such as canning the sought-after products, this book explores "old-fashioned" ideas of the sacred elements in food, which fueled the communal kitchens.
Hardcover, with slight wear to jacket spine.
