412.     [MEXICAN COOKBOOK]. RODRÍGUEZ, Ana. Nuevo libro de cocina. Recetas prácticas cuaderno 3o. Editado por la Señora Ana Rodríguez. Dulces refrescos y repostería. Guadalajara, [ca. turn of century?]. 12 pp. (including wrappers). 12mo (16 x 10.1 cm), original green printed wrappers. Wrappers slightly wrinkled with light stain on upper wrap, which also has three tiny holes affecting the central ornament; interior fine. Unusual survival of a cookbook fascicle in as-issued condition.

     As the author makes clear in her statement on the lower wrapper, she intends to present recipes that can be made a day early and saved for serving the next day. In this fascicle, she has recipes for various avian dishes, pastries, wines, and pastries to be served with tea. This cookbook does show foreign influences. The first recipe, for example, is for “Patos a la francesa,” which, although also mixed with native ingredients, are to be served with “mostaza francesa.” She also has some advice to avoid routine problems. She notes, for example, in her recipe for “Mermelada de fresas,” that if the fruit does not have good color, one should add “una gotita de carmin líquido vegetal y quedará de un color rojo transparente” (p. 10).

($50-100)
