Estonia's Oldest Cookbook

Estonia's oldest known cookbook dates back to the year 1781. The 750 page book is written in both Estonian and German and features a range of recipes from soups to meat dishes and desserts.  Four chocolate recipes are included in the book which is quite interesting considering chocolate making didn't really become popular in Estonia until the early 1800s.

This historic culinary book has been preserved and can be found in the National Library of Estonia or you can download a pdf copy here:
