This is a solid reading copy. "This book is about feasting. It is a collection of excerpts - sentences, and paragraphs, and even pages - all of them concerned with man's fundamental need to celebrate the high points of his life by eating and drinking. It is true that such a subject is not always connected, perforce, with the fine art of gastronomy, but still it is honest and intrinsically necessary in any human scheme, any plan for the future, any racial memory."

"Janet McKenzie Hill (1852–1933) was a prominent early practitioner of culinary reform, food science and scientific cooking, author of many cookbooks. Hill was born in Westfield, Massachusetts, the daughter of Alexander McKenzie, a clergyman, and Nancy (Lewis) McKenzie. In 1873 she married Benjamin M. Hill. Hill took up the study of cooking and its related sciences later in life: she returned to school around age 40, graduating from the Boston Cooking School in 1892. Fannie Farmer was assistant principal at the time. In 1896 she founded the Boston Cooking School Magazine (later renamed American Cookery)." "The waitress, who understands the composition of food, the underlying principles of cookery and cleaning, the proper construction of menus, and who has had training of the reasoning powers and judgement that is incidental to such knowledge, has gained thereby a breadth of mind and quickness of perception, which fit her to meet any emergency that may arise. Such a waitress is fitted to raise her work to the grade of the so-called professions, and to command a salary in accordance with the service rendered."

It was there that she displayed a real flair for cooking, so much so that at the age of 16 she was asked to join the staff at Sheen House, Mortlake, the home of the exiled Comte de Paris. Rosa’s technique greatly developed during her time at Sheen House and her future as “Queen of Cooks” was secured."
