The Boston Cooking School was founded in 1879 by the Women’s Education Association of Boston "to offer instruction in cooking to those who wished to earn their livelihood as cooks, or who would make practical use of such information in their families." The school became famous following the 1896 publication of The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book by its principal at the time, Fannie Merritt Farmer. Her cookbook introduced the concept of using standardized measuring spoons and cups, as well as level measurement. Farmer also included essays on housekeeping, cleaning, canning and drying fruits and vegetables, and nutritional information.Publishing details
