Book notes: McAfee on housekeeping notes from way back

Canadian food history continues to thrive. Melissa McAfee, archivist at the University of Guelph, and local publisher Rocks Mills Press have combined to publish The Canadian Receipt Book containing over 500 Valuable Receipts for the Farmer and the Housewife, based on a book first published in 1867 and held in the university archives. It promises advice from deworming the bronchial passages of a cow to the proper use of "cocoaine" to making a nice lemon pudding.
