If the paintings of Cookery in all its branches weren't under-
going a strategy of evolution, and if its canons may be once
and for ever fastened, as are these of yes medical operations
and mathematical systems, the current paintings could have no
raison d'etre; inasmuch as there exist already a number of excellent
culinary text-books within the English language. yet everything
is so risky in those instances of development at any expense, and social
customs and techniques of existence adjust so swiftly, few years
now suffice to alter thoroughly the face of usages which at
their inception bade reasonable to survive the age — so enthusiastically
were they welcomed by way of the public.

In regard to the traditions of the festal board, it's but
twenty years in the past because the ancestral English customs started to

great impetus given to traveling via steam traction and naviga-

revolution.

In the wake of the call for got here the availability. Palatial hotels
were outfitted, luxurious eating places have been opened, either one of which
offered their consumers luxuries undreamt of theretofore in such
establishments.

Modern society shrunk the behavior of participating of light
suppers in those areas, after the theatres of the Metropolis

ceding Century didn't develop into the sunshine and extra frivolous
atmosphere of eating places ; have been, in truth, ill-suited to the brisk
waiters, and their shoppers who basically had eyes for one another.

The pompous splendour of these bygone dinners, served in
the majestic dining-halls of Manors and Palaces, via liveried
footmen, was once half and parcel of the etiquette of Courts and
lordly mansions.

It is eminently fitted to nation dinners, that are in sooth
veritable ceremonies, owning their ritual, traditions, and —
one may perhaps even say — their excessive clergymen ; however it is a trifling hin-
drance to the trendy, speedy carrier. The complex and
sometimes heavy menus will be unwelcome to the hyper-
critical appetites so universal these days; therefore the necessity of a
radical switch not just within the culinary arrangements themselves,
but within the preparations of the menus, and the service.

Circumstances ordained that I might be one of many movers
in this revolution, and i may still deal with the kitchens of
two institutions that have performed so much to deliver it about.
I consequently enterprise to think publication containing a record
of all of the adjustments that have come into being in kitchen paintings —
changes whereof i'm in a superb half author^may have some
