Forgotten Recipes is a compendium of culinary treasures from the past. Jaine Rodack began collecting them from old magazines she would find at flea market sales. Those magazines of yesteryear reflected the fashions, commentaries, and views of times long gone. Rodack has assembled some of these magazine recipes into a wonderfully unique cookbook. Depending on the year they were written, their instructions differ greatly. In the late 1800s there were no controlled ovens and recipes said "cook til done". Fireless cookstoves and other now-forgotten inventions varied instructions as well. Rodack keeps as close to the original recipe as possible, although the adventurous chef may have to experiment a bit to get the head and cooking time straight. There are also household hints to try (or marvel at) and bits and pieces of memorabilia to let the reader know what was going on at the time these recipes first appeared
