Rochester : A pinch of history: Best known today as the Kodak City, Rochester over the years has had a succession o nicknames that aptly characterized its historic eras. The Falls Town, planted on the lower Genesee by Colonel Rochester 151 years ago (1812), was chartered five years later as Rochesterville, but its inhabitants, excited by the opening of the Erie Canal in the mid-twenties, boisterously called it the young Lion of the West. Although its boom-town era ended in 1829, Rochester's growth continued and the state granted it a city charter in 1834. Widely known in this period as the Flour City, because the product of its mills exceeded that of any other community, Rochester attracted an influx of Irish, German, English, Scandinavian and Jewish Immigrants who maintained the town's growth. This cookbook provides history of Rochester, NY as well as recipes.
