HISTORICAL COOKBOOKS -- What is your style of Historical recipes(receipts)

As part of my interest in History, I have begun to collect medieval and early English, German and Early American Colonial cookbooks. Is there anyone else in this group that likes to try out the really old recipes? I find it a challenge to make some of these without all the ingredients at the ready and some of the measuring (or not) is hard to figure out....love the heavy comfort foods though -- would people enjoy posting some of the more traditional early American recipes....please let me know - I will share if there is interest.

Wedding Cake 2

Hi, so what I am looking for is for someone to make my wedding cake, an individual or a bakery in my neighborhood; however I do not know how to address only the members from my neck of the woods. I did find how to locate them but not how to address them all.

So Happy To Find This Group!

One of my favorite hobbies is collecting vintage cookbooks. Whenever someone asks me what I would like for my birthday or whatever, I always tell them to find the most unique, old cookbook that they can find. They can always be found at very little cost.

Some of the very best recipes that I have are hand-written jems tucked within the pages of the books. I'm so thrilled to find others with the same love for preserving these incredible recipes!
