The Black Art Of Cooking

the black art of cookingI actually just stumbled upon this book, and I am uncertain if I liked it or not. Printed back in 1921, the book starts off with a woman reciting a poem, in which she doesn’t want to cook or wash dishes anymore. Fair enough, considering the time, you can see to who this book was marketed to.

Reading further into the book, it started describing “love” potions. I thought, “O.k, this is where it’s gonna start getting interesting.” And it did, for a while. Describing the way that “love” potions worked, all they really were, were a drink that acted as a sex stimulant.

The book then goes on, and describes Raw Foodism, and that is where the book lost me. Apyrtropher or Unfired Fooder. It then goes on to list the benefits of following this diet, and the differences between, fired and unfired food. It then goes on to recipes, if you’re into raw food, than this part is for you. Although most of the recipes seemed boring, there was one that stood out, for me at least.

Cabbage and Banana Salad.

2 oz. Cabbage cut into shreds and chopped,
1 oz. Celery stalks chopped and
2 oz. Banana chipped. Stir these until the banana becomes nearly fluid and serve.
