About the Author
There is no formal biography of Amelia Simmons available, except what is listed on the cover of her cookbook: "Amelia Simmons, an American orphan." From the language of the book and its publishing history, culinary historians have deduced that she was most likely a domestic servant without formal education. (She describes enlisting a transcriber to write out the book for her.) Simmons probably came from the Hudson Valley region, and the basic content of the recipes indicates that she was a "good plain cook," to substantiate the theory of her origins.
