The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy; Which far exceeds any Thing of the Kind yet published. To which are added, by Way of Appendix, One Hundred and Fifty New and Useful Receipts, and a Copious Index. By A Lady - Hannah Glasse 1774 - W.Strahan &c., London - New Edition The most popular English writer of cookery books was hostile to French cooking . She viewed French cooking as a wasteful extravagance (see her note to Chapter III - Read this Chapter, and you will find how expensive a French cook’s sauce is ) ‘but her book is full of stews, roasts, boiled beef, fricassees, and deep fried dishes. "Most of her recipes are more complicated than comparable French recipes from the same period." (Flandrin & Montanari).   Up until her death in 1770 Glasse published her cookbook anonymously. "Many of Glasses recipes, like those of her female contemporaries were the backbone of English cuisine. From savory veal pies and baked salmon to pickles and apple tarts, her recipes are in fact more practical than their French counterparts and many are still used in England today."
