All-Star Cook Book: An extremely rare cookbook! The All-Star Cook Book, published in 1922 by the Winona, Minnesota chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star. (Nothing to do with sports.) Hard cover, 207 pages. Pages are lightly tanned, and all are clean and clear. Corners of the cover are bumped, but the cover is in excellent antique condition. Binding is strong. Several clean blank pages at the back.
Recipes are all great examples of traditional Midwestern cooking, with the strong Scandinavian influence. The Menu-Making Maxims at the front of the book are a history lesson: one-quarter pound hamburger steak cost .06 cents. One apple cost .02 cents.

At VintageCookbook.com we try to provide you with your mother’s cookbook! I know lots of current recipe bloggers write proudly that their recipes are “not from your mother’s cookbook.” We think the recipes in your mother’s cookbook provided food that was nutritious and warm and colorful and just plain yummy! We know that just looking at the cover of your mother’s Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book makes you feel good. Holding her Betty Crocker Cookbook, or her Better Homes and Gardens, or Good Housekeeping Cookbook in your hands is better than nostalgic. And cooking some of those dishes for your children will pass on a great tradition.
