The Illustrated London Cookery Book - Frederick Bishop

Excerpt from The Illustrated London Cookery Book: Containing Upward of Fifteen Hundred First-Rate Receipts, Selected With Great Care, and a Proper to Economy; And Embodying All the Latest Improvements in the Culinary Art: Accompanied by Important Remarks and Counsel on the Arrangement and Well-Ordering O

The present Collection of Receipts has been selected and arranged with much care and a well-directed attention to economy; they are the results of a long experience, and will be found, on inspection, to contain nearly, if not all that can be esteemed essential for the production alike of a simply or a most elaborately furnished table.

It has been argued, and not without some reason, that not only is the work of a professed cuisinier above the comprehension of a less experienced cook, but that the receipts he furnishes will be found too expensive for private families. When this occurs, it is the fault of the author, who, being only accustomed to dress dinners for the highest circles, forgets that the tables of the middle classes may be furnished more handsomely than in their daily routine, and yet as inexpensively.
