John Farley, formerly principal cook at the London Tavern, designed his 1811 ""The London Art of Cookery..."" to be a complete source of recipes and cooking information for housewives and domestic servants. Containing ""every elegant and plain preparation in improved modern cookery -- Pickling, potting, salting, collaring, and sousing -- The whole art of confectionary, and making of jellies, jams, and creams, and ices -- The preparation of sugars, candying, and preserving -- Made wines, cordial-waters, and malt-liquors -- Bills of fare for each month -- Wood-cuts, illustrative of trussing, carving, &c,"" as well as preparations for meats, vegetables, and soups, this work is a complete reference full of recipes that would easily be adapted to today's kitchen.
