Categories: , ,


Step into our log cabin village and sample some authentic pioneer cooking! From New England to Texas, from the Appalachians to Pike’s Peak, pioneer cooks had to be tough and self-sufficient–able to whip up hearty meals with little more than an iron pot and a sharp knife. Recipes range from Chisholm Trail Chili to Appalachian Stack Cake and Grandma Cody’s Applesauce Cookies. If pioneer life has left you bruised and battered, we’ve included some curious remedies and questionable cure-alls. This book is loaded with captivating snippets of information,  recipes, vintage art and photos and much more! 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, 168 pages.

1 review for Pioneer Village Cookbook – Book

  1. Midwest Book Review

    Charming illustrated with vintage woodcuts and the occasional black-and-white photo, Ann Chandonnet’s “The Pioneer Village Cookbook” offers 168 pages of culinary and folk medicine nostalgia drawn from our pioneer forebears. Offering commentary rich with historical perspective and context, “The Pioneer Village Cookbook” is a compendium of 17th and 19th century wisdom born of necessity when kitchen cooks from the Appalachians, to the New England States, to the Texas prairies had little more than the basics of a knife and cooking pot. Of special note is the section on ‘Hearty Breakfast’ with dishes ranging from Indian Slapjack, to Hasty Pudding, to Red Flannel Hash, and more! A fascinating and informative read, and offering a wealth of truly ‘down home’ cooking, “The Pioneer Village Cookbook” is a highly recommended addition to academic library American Folk Medicine reference collections, as well as personal, family, and community library cookbook shelves.
