The French Family Cook
London: J. Bell, 1793. First Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition. Full contemporary tree calf with a later rebacking and new endpapers. Lettering piece chipped, scattered foxing, last few pages heavily browned and final page with a number of tape repairs; still about very good. xxiv, 342pp. Cagle 872, Bitting 554, Simon 714 The first English edition of Menon's hugely influential Cuisinière Bourgeoise (1746). Menon's aims were similar, if a bit more rarefied, to Hannah Glasse's - to bring practicality and common sense to cookery. For comparison, Menon's recipe "To Roll a Turkey" and La Chapelle's "Young Turkies in the Shape of a Foot-Ball" are very similar but the former leaves out the veal, calf's udder, partridges, pistachios, and truffles. Size: 8vo (octavo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000164.
