Description

A mixture of a history of cookery books and some recipes. From the Introduction: 'Man has been distinguished from other animals in various ways; but perhaps there is no particular in which he exhibits so marked a difference from the rest of creation — not even in the prehensile faculty resident in his hand — as in the objection to raw food, meat, and vegetables. He approximates to his inferior contemporaries only in the matter of fruit, salads, and oysters, not to mention wild-duck.'

This book has 122 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1886.

Production notes: This e-book of Old Cookery Books and Ancient Cuisine was published by Global Grey in 2018.
