If the paintings of Cookery in all its branches weren't under-
going a means of evolution, and if its canons might be once
and for ever fastened, as are these of sure clinical operations
and mathematical systems, the current paintings could have no
raison d'etre; inasmuch as there exist already a number of excellent
culinary text-books within the English language. yet everything
is so risky in those occasions of development at any price, and social
customs and techniques of lifestyles modify so swiftly, few years
now suffice to alter thoroughly the face of usages which at
