    The preface is signed "Andrew Stewart". Here the author says that he has compiled the volume from recipes sent in by Scottish housewives # the result of an appeal in his earlier work, "The Scottish cookery book" # "so that practically the goodwives of Scotland are responsible for the recipes contained in the book." He adds, "It is a representative book, embodying, so far as it goes, the common dietary of the people".
    LoEN and OB date this title [1882].
