First edition of this treatise on new sanitary cooking, which exposes the principles of frugality, sobriety, and whose references are not only French: it relies on foreign practices, and explains, for example, how to cook rice the Guinea way, make wine similar to Greek wine, or milk and butter soup the Dutch way. It is about confectionery, preserves, liqueurs, cakes... but also recipes for salads, breads, oysters...
