From the Publisher
Annotation Chris Kimball, founder of Cook's Illustrated and TV host of AMERICA'S TEST KITCHEN, spirits his readers back to Victorian-era Boston as he searches out the ingredients and implements he needs to prepare and then serve the ornate 12-course Christmas extravaganza (including stuffed goose, rissoles, and dessert jellies) detailed by Fannie Farmer in her 1896 bestseller, THE BOSTON COOKING-SCHOOL COOKBOOK. With precision, intelligence, and humor, Kimball tests and tastes (and often revamps the less palatable recipes) while entertaining readers with a social history of food, dining, and the difficulties of cooking without refrigeration or oven thermometers. A riveting read, with recipes.
Editors Note In this culinary and historical adventure, Kimball, founder of Cook's Illustrated and host of the PBS series America's Test Kitchen, hosts a Victorian dinner based on the recipes of Fannie Farmer, author of The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book, which was first published in 1896.
