The Cape Kitchen by Mary Alexander Cook


Since the earliest days the kitchen has been the heart of the home. In many primitive dwellings the whole house simply grew round the kitchen hearth. Here for the first time a well-known writer and cultural historian describes the old kitchens of the Cape: how thtey were built and fitted out. She gives fascinating accounts of old methods and utensils, many of which have not been used for years and are quite unknown to the modern housewife. From brandsolders and hearth irons to soap and candle-making the author treats each subject with the devoted precision of the true enthusiast.
