The preface states; 'As for the receipts relating to cookery and pastry-work, they must be own'd to be very useful, since they contain all that may contribute not only to the preservation, but even also to the recovery of health: a good kitchin [sic] having certainly a better influence upon our constitutions, than an apothecary's shop.'
