Hi Gloria,

There are several copies of the book here, at Abebooks:



Fannie Farmer Online

No questions this time, just some info you may want to share with others. 
My mom has a very old, very well-used copy of Fanny Farmer's The Boston
Cooking-School Cook Book, circa OLD, but it has terrific recipes that 
cover many situations. There are conversions for measurements, suggestions 
for serving decorations, and lots more, including storage times. I know 
there are other people who have seen/used this cookbook, and it is now online, 
circa 1918, and searchable. Links to each section, and you can even download 
it, a chapter at a time. It's here.
My mom's copy (this book is older than she is, although her copy is a little 
bit newer than the one online) has been used so well, and so thoroughly, that 
there are fudge drips, frosting smudges, spatters, etc. - signs of a well-loved
cookbook. Everyone copies recipes from it, and she still uses it. I'm hoping to
inherit it, someday, but in the meantime, Fanny Farmer is online.


(Sure would like to know how you got so involved in recipe searching... and why 
you decided to share! Glad you do, though.)

Reindeer Tenderloin with Chard and Sautéed Mushrooms    
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes

Serves: 4

2 reindeer, or venison, tenderloins (about 500g each)
Coarsely ground black pepper
2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
115ml port
1 shallot, peeled and finely chopped
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
200ml veal demi-glace (strong veal stock) or beef stock

Sautéed mushrooms
25g oyster mushrooms
25g shiitake mushrooms
25g chestnut mushrooms
50g chanterelle mushrooms
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 shallot, finely chopped

25g butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
450g tender red chard leaves, washed and tough stems removed

Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas mark 5. Trim the tenderloins of any membrane, 
then trim to a uniform rectangular shape. Rub all over with pepper. Heat the
 grapeseed oil in a medium sauté pan over a medium-high heat. Sear the 
 tenderloins on all sides. Transfer to a roasting pan and put in the oven 
 for 20-25 minutes to finish cooking, then leave to rest for 3 minutes. 
Remove from the roasting tin and keep warm.

Meanwhile, pour the port into the pan used to sear the tenderloin - keep it 
over a medium heat, scraping up any bits of meat from the pan. Add the finely 
chopped shallot and the lemon zest and juice, and cook over a medium heat until 
the liquid has nearly all evaporated. Add the demi-glace or stock and reduce 
the liquid by half again. Season and strain.

Trim the mushrooms, slicing any large ones. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil 
and sauté the shallots for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and sauté for 8 minutes 
until tender and beginning to brown. Keep them warm.

In a separate pan, combine the butter, olive oil and garlic for the chard. 
Cook over a medium heat until the garlic is lightly browned. Add the chard 
and cook until just wilted. Season.

To assemble, warm 4 plates. Slice the tenderloin into 2.5cm-thick medallions. 
Place the chard in the centre of each plate, top with the meat, and surround 
with mushrooms. Drizzle over the strained sauce and serve immediately.
