About This Item

Oblong 8vo, pp. 85, [3]; printed advertisement on endpapers; original decorative tinted lithograph boards, worn on spine and corners.

A handy reference guide for those with a cook at hand to make their chosen dishes, each of which have a one line précis of ingredients and preparation as an aide-mémoire.

'The object of this book is to enable those ordering meals to see at a glance the various dishes, and modes of dressing them, without being encumbered with the fuller directions (only necessary for the cook), which, with a few exceptions, are to be found in Mrs. Beeton's" Book of Household Management." It contains lists of things suitable for Breakfast, Dinner, and Supper, with a short indication of how to cook and serve them-Soup, Fish, Meat, Game, Poultry, Entrées, Vegetables, Fruit, Puddings, Pastry, Sweet Dishes, &c.—and is so arranged that you may glance quickly down each column and decide upon what to order in a few minutes, instead of wasting time in searching through lengthy receipts, or trying in vain to remember the innumerable dishes there are to choose from.' [Preface].

'Aunt Parker' can probably be identified with Gertrude Parker (1837-1900) a governess and later schoolmistress in Dorset the daughter of the Rev Edward Parker Stoke Gifford, Gloucestershire. She also appears to have produced the illustration for the cover and the decorative monogram on the verso of the preface. OCLC records copies in the UK, at the BL, Cambridge, Oxford Brookes, Leeds and the NLS, and one in North America at Columbia.
