Some Men Used to Cook

It's not just the ladies who submit recipes for those old recipe books, occasionally one may find a member of the male persuasion listed as well.

This entry from 1903 shows a recipe for baked wild duck.

Of course measurements are somewhat inexact as the amount of butter is compared to an egg.

Are you assuming only ladies are mentioned in old cookbooks?

This cookbook was one of my recent  Ebay purchases.
