    Williams discusses the following processes of cookery: roasting, grilling, braising, toasting and baking, all of which he classifies as cooking by radiant heat; and boiling and frying, cooking by contact. Through his scientific analysis he suggests the best ways of cooking food. No recipes are included in the text.
    The lecture is also printed in Vol. VI, pages 111-133, of Health Ex Lib 1884.
