Book Description

About the Author Born on July 8, 1844 in South Attleboro, Massachusetts, Mary attended a female seminary, taught school, and, on July 21, 1865, married David Lincoln. Lincoln's poor health eventually prompted Mary to help support the family financially. In 1879 she joined the teaching staff of the influential Boston Cooking School, and became the school's first principal. In 1883 she published the Boston Cooking School Cook Book: What to Do and What Not to Do in Cooking (not to be confused with the Original Boston Cooking-School Cook Book published by Fannie Farmer in 1896). Mary Lincoln published the Boston School Kitchen Text in 1887. Dedicated to the culinary education of American women, Mary wrote clear, easy to follow recipes, and suggested the use of up-to-date kitchen equipment like the Dover rotary egg beater, rather than the old-fashioned whisk. --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.
