Introduction THE PENINSULA which lies between theD elaware and Chesapeake Bays and is composed of theE astern Shore of Maryland, D...elaware, and a little bit of Virginia, has for two hundred years been famous the world over for the lusciousness of its viands and the excellence of its cooking. The recipes which tickled the palates of the Colonial planters and their visitors, and first earned for the Peninsula its fame for the highest development in the art of cooking, have descended with the family plate to the heirs of those old planters; nor has the art of the Colonial housekeeper been lost; but rather has it been refined and adapted to modern conditions and cullinary appliances. Many of the recipes have been handed down from mother to daughter, and to grand-daughter among the women of the Peninsula and are as highly prized by them as their family plate and Colonial furniture. These recipes were gathered by the ladies ofT heM ilford New Century Club; and all were thoroughly tested before their approval. Only persons well-known for their cooking were asked to contribute. The publishers hope to perpetuate by this publication the housewifely lore of the Peninsula, and to share it with the public. It is with this idea that we oflfer the second edition ofT he Blue Hen sC hickens Cook Book to the public.
