Emily Dickinson: Profile of the Poet as Cook (1976)

Emily Dickinson:Profile of the Poet as Cook
with Selected Recipes
multiple authors
Amherst, MA

Fascinating subject! I had never thought about Emily Dickinson in this regard. The authors were all connected to the Dickinson Homestead in the Bicentennial year. A well researched and illustrated chapbook. 28 pages. Staple-bound. Text mingled with recipes. Pretty awesome indeed.

About this pamphlet: To every 19th century woman, bread making was basic. Emily Dickinson was no exception. In fact, her Rye and Indian bread and gingerbread made her more famous in the Amherst of her day than did her poetry.
