The El Paso Cook Book (1898) was the first cookbook published in that city. The El Paso Cook Book is valuable from an historical standpoint-for what it tells us about El Paso and what it tells us about cookery at the beginning of the twentieth century. It also offers wonderful recipes that can be re-created today by anyone willing to include some trial and error in the cooking process to allow for changes wrought in ingredients and kitchen technology by the passage of more than a century.
