Farmer, Fannie Merritt

(March 23, 1857 - January 15, 1915)

Fannie Merritt Farmer, American culinary authority, and author of the 1896 edition of 'The Boston Cooking School Cook Book' which became known in future editions as the 'Fannie Farmer Cook Book.'

Director of the Boston Cooking School, and founder of Miss Farmer's School of Cookery. She is often cited as the first cookbook author to introduce standard measurements.

Fanny Farmer had to pay the printing costs of her cookbook, The Boston Cooking School Cook Book, because Little, Brown and Company were not very enthusiastic about publishing another cookbook. By 1977, over 4 million copies had been sold, outselling any other book ever published by Little, Brown and Company.
