Doctor Kinney's Housekeeper

The book that started it all!  Without the kitchen backdrop of Doctor Kinney's Housekeeper, Housekeeper Crockery would not exist.  For that, we are thankful this book saw the light of print.

We are excited to announce that in March 2016, Housekeeper Crockery won the Grand Prize in its category for an International book award - the Chanticleer Laramie Award for Women's Historical Fiction!

Enjoy this paperback edition of Doctor Kinney's Housekeeper and delve into the 1880's, when kitchens were well stocked with American made cast iron, copper and wood, and the pottery was likely made down the road.  Follow Jane Weber's journey to the Dakota Territories and back, and imagine you're tasting the food she's cooking in a house out west or in a fine kitchen in Massachusetts.  Either way, you're guaranteed to be turning pages fast and up until the wee hours to finish.

In the 1800s, much of what was found in the kitchens were items that were actually forged, hammered and created in America. It was too expensive to send over to Europe for cookware and kitchen goods, and all of the natural resources and artisans could be found here in the States anyway.

Today, that’s often not the case with kitchenware.

Our pots are made by machine in China.

Our dishtowels are stitched in Taiwan.

Our food is grown in Mexico.


We are a small, two-person husband & wife team, but have been fortunate enough to create a network and community of amazing vendors, artisans, manufacturers and other entrepreneurs.  Between the hard work of everyone involved, Housekeeper Crockery can come to your kitchen.
