“Old Cooking Utensils” is a 2010 reprint of the first edition that was published in 1986. It’s a 32-page black-and-white book exploring the tools used for processing food, from preparation to preservation, during the open-hearth age – before gas and electricity were used for cooking.
Author David J. Eveleigh takes the reader through simplified steps of food storage and preservation, preparation and cooking methods. The book is lavishly illustrated with photographs, line drawings and plate reproductions from vintage catalogs of the tools necessary for all these processes.
Eveleigh is curator of the Black Country Living Museum. He is a Fellow of London’s Society of Antiquaries and also of the Museums Association, and has published several books on aspects of the history of domestic and everyday life.
“Old Cooking Utensils” is a small, portable book packed with practical historical information: what the utensils are, and what they were used for. It does not contain pricing data, but does hold large lists of resources for further reading and places to visit in the UK.
