Einfalt Matreiðslu Vasa Qver fyrir heldri manna húsfr.

Matreiðsluvasakver fyrir heldri manna húsfreyjur, published by Magnús Stephensen in 1800, was the first published Icelandic cookbook. Though the author was said to be Marta María Stephensen, Magnús Stephensen´s sister-in-law, Magnús himself was probably responsible, having translated the recipes from Danish.
