Catherine Owen's 1881 "Culture and Cooking" is not a recipe book, per se, but rather an attempt to help readers understand food. She explains the processes of why recipes work and aims to elevate cooking in American to an art form, rather than a utilitarian, daily process of feeding the body. The recipes she does provide are written like a work of literature, rather than a listing of ingredients and directions, to give readers a thorough understanding of cookery, so that American cooks will begin (like the French) to see cooking as an art.

Specific instruction in the basics of technique, kitchen set-up, and preparation insured that young and/or inexperienced cooks would have great success with Mrs. Lincoln's recipes.

Her recipes reflect an interest in the chemistry of food. Instruction in the sciences was a key part of her curriculum. Originally published in 1880, The Appledore Cook Book aimed to provide a practical cookbook for "young housekeepers" with author-tested recipes that use easier methods and less expensive ingredients than those in other books.
