In 1914 March 11 was a Wednesday.

The recipe for Fried Smelts includes an unusual garnish alongside the expected parsley and lemon — fried gelatin. This was made with sheets of gelatin quickly fried until it turned white.

The Huntingtons were a prominent New England family and Ralph Huntington was involved with filling in the Back Bay. Fannie Farmer’s cooking school (after she left the Boston Cooking School) was located at 30 Huntington Avenue, which was named for him.
