(African American) Mahammitt, Mrs. T.P. (Helen). Recipes and Domestic Service: The Mahammitt School of Cookery.

Original spiral-bound blue cloth lettered in silver. First Edition. Omaha: 1939.

An important work on catering aimed at African American cooks, by the director of the Mahammitt School of Cookery. As Toni Tipton-Martin, author of The Jemima Code, points out, "...we're able to see that here is a woman who is conveying messaging to create more caterers. But she's also conveying to us what she values in the kitchen, her professional values, what her work ethic is. She conveys that in a very loving but also technical way. She's very precise. There is a culinary academy feel to her material. It's really a wonderful view into the mind of a culinary instructor who traditionally and historically have been represented as unable to convey their competencies." Near fine and bright. Rare.
