Elise B. Lismoen Cookbook, 1900
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

The Elise B. Lismoen Cookbook is a handwritten notebook from 1900, consisting of 89 pages of recipes written in Norwegian, and one page written in English. The cookbook was probably created by Elise Lismoen while enrolled at a cooking school in Oslo, Norway. The recipes include ingredients, measurements, and preparation details. Some of the recipes are for different puddings, soups, and sauces. Many of the pages are loose and some are stained, suggesting the recipes were frequently used. The back cover of the cookbook is missing.

In addition to the cookbook, there is an old, wooden utensil that was probably used for stirring during the preparation of soups, porridges, and other recipes.
