Edward Kidder (1665?-1739), a renowned pastry chef in 18th-century London, was also a very successful teacher of the culinary arts. Kidder probably dictated this book with his students in mind; Kidder scholars were able to record his recipes in notebooks -- most likely in the 1720s & 1730s -- that through careful ownership have survived the passage of time. This facsimile edition reproduces one such notebook, as well as a typeset transcription of the manuscript, a historical & culinary intro., updated recipes for today’s chefs, & a glossary which defines Kidder’s once-familiar terms. The notebook contains many recipes for meat “pyes” & pasties with meat, plus recipes for puddings & cakes & meat, poultry, & fish main dishes. Illus.
