|My Grandma’s Vintage Recipes:
Old Standards for a New Age
by Tracy Falbe
A vintage recipe is obviously something from at least a
few decades in the past, if not longer. But I feel a
vintage recipe also needs to show the character of the
time in which it was written. The recipes presented in
this collection came from my Grandma’s school
notebook that she began when she was 15 years old.
She grew up in Chatham, Ontario, Canada, and her
recipes reflect the food eaten at that time and place. ~

Regain the wisdom and creativity of our ancestors
who were experts at whipping up something special
with tight budgets and limited supplies. You may not
be able to find the “10-cent bag of marshmallows”
anymore, but modern cooks can still benefit from this
collection of 1920s vintage recipes collected by my late
Grandmother. In 2012 I discovered her handwritten recipe
notebook from 1926 and developed this cookbook.
While updating the directions for modern cooks, I
maintained the vintage charm of her original notes.
Generations ago people did not have a bunch of fancy
ingredients, but they still came up with a variety of yummy
quick breads, cakes, desserts, pies, salads, main dishes,
canning recipes, and fruitcakes. This cookbook has a
special emphasis on fruitcakes. I share my mood-altering
experiences with her fruitcake recipes. Bakers who love
the holidays should definitely add a classic Christmas
fruitcake to their list. All jokes aside, fruitcake deserves a
place among elite holiday desserts.
And people into urban farming and homesteading can
harvest delicious value from these vintage recipes meant
to use up all the dried fruit and nuts you can pick. Plus
find a variety of classic uses for all the tomatoes,
cucumbers, and apples you can grow with marvelous
canning recipes for sauces, pickles, and chutneys.
My Grandma’s name was Edna Oldershaw Irwin and her
recipes reflect the character of the food in 1920s Canada
where she grew up in Chatham , Ontario . After months of
effort, I’ve prepared 64 of her recipes for publication. I no
longer have my Grandma, but I still have her cookbook
and now you can read it too.
