A scarce and substantial regional cook book published by the women of St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Medford, Oregon. Recipes are divided into categories, most listing the contributor. The volume contains a wide array of recipes for soups, vegetables, eggs and cheeses, meats, a variety of desserts, sandwiches, pickles, preserves, and a section for menus. Medford is located in southwestern Oregon, along present-day Interstate 5; in the decade between 1900 and 1910, the population boomed, growing from 1,800 to 8,800 people. We locate two copies in OCLC, at the University of California and Southern Methodist University.
