A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

"Here, finally, is a book on the colonial kitchen that will be (or should be) read and savored by every interested layman, informed collector, museum curator, and cultural historian. A romantic ideal has always sustained the myths surrounding early historic house and museum installations of old kitchens. In this beautifully produced and lucidly organized work, Frances Phipps casts welcome light into numerous dark corners, clears up many old problems, and banishes more than one hallowed belief about this important room in the colonial home. From fresh materials the author has put color and variety into the cultural life of the early American colonies." -- Wendell Garrett, Editor, The Magazine 'Antiques'
