"La cuisine raisonnée", more than a cookbook: interview with Sister Marthe Charron

Sister Marthe Charron gives an overview of "La cuisine raisonnée" written by the Congrégation de Notre-Dame.

After pointing out that this publication has been used by generations of women, Sister Charron mentions that it was used not only for cooking but for running the house in general. It was well adapted to the local people, a manual that met the needs of the teachers studying domestic science at Saint-Pascal de Kamouraska. La cuisine raisonnée has always been more than a cookbook; it touched on many topics including food chemistry. It even laid the foundation for dietetics.
