Notes:
"Published October, 1902."
"Foreign cookery books are, as a rule, unsatisfactory, the English being painfully naïve, and the French too indefinite or too extravagant as regards quantities. It is hoped, therefore, that this little volume will fill a place between. Our cooking has been usually, so far, too plain or too rich, insipid or spicy, without that delicate intelligent seasoning which foreign cookery economically represents."--P. xiv.
