About the Author: Hilda Leyel (1880-1957), who wrote under the name Mrs. C. F.

Author of a book on herbalism, called Elixirs of Life, Leyel was also a fellow of the Royal Institution, and an officer of the Academie Francaise. Suffragist, journalist and author of the post-war novel Anne, Miss Olga Hartley was Hilda Leyel's assistant, and helped her with the writing of The Gentle Art of Cooking.
