Excerpt from The Century Cook Book: With a New Supplement of One Hundred Receipts of Especial Excellence

While the question of food and its preparation is the most vital and important one in the home, it is perhaps the most difficult of all the material questions that present themselves to the housekeepers in China, owing principally to the inability of the majority to speak the language of the country, and to make their orders intelligible to the cook. To meet this difficulty and at the same time with the hope of being able from its sale to aid the war fund, Mrs. Calder-Marshall originally planned to publish a smaller work, giving a limited number of recipes taken from authoritative sources, and to have it translated into Chinese. It soon became apparent to her, however that for such a book to have a real value, a more comprehensive work, one that should cover as nearly as possible all the phases of cooking would be necessary. The scope of the work, therefore, was enlarged until it now includes more than one thousand recipes. Many tried and approved recipes have been furnished by ladies in Shanghai and elsewhere, the largest contribution of this kind, and one that deserves special mention is that of Mrs. J. B.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Century Cook Book: With a New Supplement of One Hundred Receipts of Especial Excellence Although definite honors are not conferred on cooks else where, good cooking is everywhere appreciated, and there is no reason why it should not be the rule instead of the exception. In large establishments it may be said to prevail, but in many moderate households the daily fare is of a quality which satis fies no other sense than that of hunger, the hygienic require ments and esthetic possibilities being quite unknown or dis regarded. This is what Savarin designates as feeding, in contradistinction to dining. The author believes that the women of to-day, because of their higher education, have a better understanding of domes tic duties; that hygiene, economy, system, and method are better understood and more generally practised. Children are not only more sensibly clothed, but they are more wholesomely fed, and households are directed with more intelligent care.
