An original and intriguing sort of book on foods possible to prepare at home, with the background of the old Rector's as a criterion. Discussion of the joys of the palate and the way to a man's heart. Takes such mundane things as soups, hot breads, stews, tea and coffee, pie, salads -- and makes them exciting and tempting -- and practical. The sort of book on cookery that makes one long to go into the kitchen and experiment. One section on bachelors' (and deserted husbands') menage and the primary facts of home cooking. Spiced with anecdotes and personalities.
