Excerpt from A Shilling Cookery for the People

First, most of the receipts, having been especially written for various ordinary kitchen utensils, some of them may appear to the reader to be repetitions, which is not the case, as the same food may be used, yet each process will differ one from the other, from having~~ been cooked in a different manner.

Secondly, to obviate the reading of two or three receipts to be able to execute one, I have made each receipt in itself as complete as possible, as regards seasoning and proportion, and the few references I unavoidably make will, after a little practice, become familiar to my f readers.

Many of the receipts may appear to you rather lengthy, but I want to draw your attention to the fact, that they are more than receipts - indeed, I may call them plain lessons, some containing a number of receipts in one.

In some cookery books many receipts are explained in few lines, which at first sight gives to the thing the appearance of simplicity but when acted on by the uninitiated are found totally impracticable.
