Rated 4 out of 5 by from Robin Hood in Edwardian Canada This charming reprint provides a nostalgic glimpse into both domestic cookery and the popularity of the Robin Hood legend in Edwardian Canada. The cookbook was originally published in 1914 as an advertising scheme by the Robin Hood Flour Company, a Canadian company that is still thriving nearly 90 years later. L. Moen's original art nouveau illustrations of Robin Hood's famous adventures, in an unusual 3-colour palette of black, green, and soft brown, lend a whimsical touch. Mrs. Rorer's recipes are fascinating for the social historian, and in many cases, still usable for the modern cook. Appropriately, there is a fairly large section on game, including rather startling instructions for roasting a haunch of venison in front of an open fire, with the hoof and some hide still attached. A wonderful historical cookbook that nicely evokes the era!
