Chinese-Japanese Cook Book

by Onoto Watanna

This book is well set out, however I found the recipes in it rather dull. I guess it written when there wasn't many Chinese ingredients available in the shops in the west or times were tight so they had to make do.

If you are interested in knowing the additude towards women and sexuality during the turn of the century before last then this book is very revealing and a little alarming. When it father said something about how he would rather his daughter dead than behaving in a shameful way...well it made me think of honour killings.

The Forme of Cury

by Samuel Pegge

I can really recommend this book to anyone interested in history middle English or cooking.

The characters display correctly on epub there is a hypertext contents for easy finding and notes on archaic(old) words. Read it out aloud v=u. Some of the dishes actually sound quite tasty.
