Comments

Divided into 9 chapters: I - Curry; II - Savory Dishes from Other Countries; III - Split Peas or Dal; IV - Rice; V - Bujeas; VI - Breads; VII - Pickles and Chutneys; VIII - Chutney; IX - Most Everything (primarily sweets). The author, Mary Kennedy Core, was apparently an American missionary living in Northern India in the first decade of the 20th century. In her Preface she expresses great appreciation for the food of Hindustan, concluding with a dig at American cuisine ". . . we enjoy the American food, but we think that when it comes to making nice tasty somethings out of almost nothing, America is not in it at all. Nearly every nation in the world can do better. I hope these recipes will help." Axford p.237. Not in Bitting or Cagle. Only 10 copies on OCLC/WorldCat.
