Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The bibliographic content of each entry is meticulous and will be of great service to everyone whose research involves cookbooks. In the course of his research Notaker has extended bibliographical knowledge and has corrected many errors."
"One well known feature of published cookbooks is the frequency with which authors 'borrowed' recipes from previously published works. Notaker finds 'at least 20 of the 100 titles before 1700 are compilations or plagiarisms'. His careful research allows the reader to trace the influence of one cookbook on another. He notes that an even larger number, '20 to 30 are translations or partly translations of cookbooks in other languages, representing between 15 to 20 per cent of the total number of editions'. The pan-European scope of the book allows us to trace the influence of individual cookbooks across the continent."
"[...]this book – its elegance, comprehensiveness, detail, and utility. I am sure it will remain a standard work for many years to come." - Petits Propos Culinaires, 94 (December 2011)
