Plumas County Historical Cookbook
(+ sales tax if applicable)
Made In USA
"The Plumas County Historical Cookbook is a unique collection of 186 recipes obtained from families throughout the area, many whose decendants date back to 1854, when Plumas County was first formed.
This is not an ordinary cookbook. It reflects the people and times of a bygone era, when fruits, vegetables and meat were home-grown, empty whiskey barrels stored sauerkraut, every kitchen contained a wooden butter mold and hands were thrust into wood-stove ovens to test the heat before baking. The recipes however, haven't changed. Neither have the people who followed them yesterday, today, and tomorrow, too, we hope. For the enjoyment of cooking, and the pleasure of eating, is universal, and timeless. (104 pages)"
