Vintage Los Angeles Cookbook

Originally published in 1881, this fascinating collection of recipes contributed by the members of the Ladies' Aid Society (of LA's Methodist Episcopal Church) includes familiar old dishes like fish chowder, roast turkey, and chocolate cake.

More unusual offerings include stewed pigeons, suet pudding, and English brawn, made with a pig's head. Interspersed throughout the book are historic and charming advertisements from Los Angeles businesses - purveyors of stove polish, gents' furnishing goods, and ladies' ready-made dresses among them.
