If the artwork of Cookery in all its branches weren't under-
going a technique of evolution, and if its canons can be once
and for ever fastened, as are these of definite medical operations
and mathematical approaches, the current paintings might have no
raison d'etre; inasmuch as there exist already numerous excellent
culinary text-books within the English language. yet everything
is so volatile in those instances of growth at any rate, and social
customs and strategies of lifestyles regulate so quickly, few years
now suffice to alter thoroughly the face of usages which at
their inception bade reasonable to survive the age — so enthusiastically
were they welcomed through the public.

In regard to the traditions of the festal board, it's but
twenty years in the past because the ancestral English customs started to
make manner prior to the more recent equipment, and we needs to glance to the
great impetus given to vacationing by way of steam traction and naviga-

Modern society shriveled the behavior of engaging of light
suppers in those areas, after the theatres of the Metropolis
had closed; and the well-to-do started to flock to them on

of Cookery — ^better tailored to the actual atmosphere in
which they have been to be practised. The admirable productions
popularised by means of the previous Masters of the Culinary paintings of the pre-


ceding Century didn't develop into the sunshine and extra frivolous
atmosphere of eating places ; have been, in reality, ill-suited to the brisk

footmen, was once half and parcel of the etiquette of Courts and
lordly mansions.

It is eminently suited for country dinners, that are in sooth
veritable ceremonies, owning their ritual, traditions, and —
one may well even say — their excessive clergymen ; however it is an insignificant hin-
drance to the trendy, swift carrier. The advanced and
sometimes heavy menus will be unwelcome to the hyper-
critical appetites so universal these days; for this reason the necessity of a
radical switch not just within the culinary arrangements themselves,
but within the preparations of the menus, and the service.

Circumstances ordained that I could be one of many movers
in this revolution, and i may still deal with the kitchens of
two institutions that have performed such a lot to deliver it about.
