Re-printed cookbook filled with ‘tried and tested’ York County, Pa., recipes

This advertisement is among hundreds that appear in the ‘York Hospital “Benefit” Cookbook,’ circa 1916. The cookbook has been reprinted and available for sale at the York County Heritage Trust. The cookbook was subtitled “Home Formulary of ‘Tried and Tested’ York County Recipes with Hints and Helps to Good Housekeeping.” In the original cookbook, color swaths were glued onto the pages of this advertisement from the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Alabastine.
