From butchery, preserving, food preparation, sweets, desserts, food for the invalid,even brewing, wine making and cures for common ailments and a section on healing, soaps, scents and the way to make cosmetics such as rouge and lip balm! This author was a jack of all trades and obviously loved imparting helpful and useful knowledge. Really interesting as this volume covers not just food as the title would suggest but many other subjects too related to the home and domesticity and is a gem that captures a bygone era and is a slice of social history and ways of life pertaining to the author's day.

I am finding these historical food reads fascinating and this one is no different. Interesting comments in many of the chapters are entertaining and give a hint to the attitudes and dry wit of Hannah Glasse.

The opening note, To the Reader, sets out Mrs. An example at the beginning of Chapter III: Boiling and Dressing: That professed cooks will find fault with me for touching upon a branch of Cookery which they never thought worth their notice, is what I expect: however, this I know, is is the most necessary part of it; and few servants there are that know how to boil and dress to perfection.
