Hello Home Owner


These recipes are drawn up in a style so plain and minute, as to be perfectly intelligible to servants, and persons of the most moderate capacity. All the ingredients, with their proper quantities, are enumerated in a list at the head of each recipe, a plan which will greatly facilitate the business of procuring and preparing the requisite articles.


There is frequently much difficulty in following directions in English and French Cookery Books, not only from their want of explicitness, but from the difference in the fuel, fire-places, and cooking utensils, generally used in Europe and America; and

many of the European recipes are, so complicated and laborious, that our cooks are afraid to undertake the arduous task of making anything from them.
