The Cookbook Club: 19th-century California
Each month a significant cookbook will be chosen for discussion and hands-on cooking.
In March, it's El cocinero español (The Spanish Cook) by Encarnacion Pinedo, 1898.
Published in San Francisco, The Spanish Cook is Californias first Spanish-language cookbook. It stands out in a time and place where men dominated the world of letters, and those letters were published in English. Pinedo spoke, read and wrote in at least two languages. Her literacy and education mark her as a member of Californias cultural elite.
