The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy by Hannah Glasse was first published in 1747. Its great success was due in part to the fact that it made cookery plainer and easier, and was addressed specifically to servants and women cooks, not male chefs or French boobies. Though drawing on other people's work (without acknowledgement), it was both original and useful, and included, for instance, the first English recipe for curry. It was also written at great speed (about four months) by a mother of 11 children who had never written anything longer than a letter in her life. biographical introduction.
