"THE present work on cookery appeared in England under the title of " The Official Hand-Book of the National Training School for Cookery," and it contains the lessons on the preparation of food which were practised in that institution. It has been reprinted in this country with some slight revision, for the use of American families, because of its superior merits as a cook-book to be consulted in the ordinary way, and also because it is the plainest, simplest, and most perfect guide to self-education in the kitchen that has yet appeared.

Published in 1868 by renowned cooking teacher Pierre Blot, The Handbook of Practical Cookery for Ladies and Professional Cooks is a masterwork of French Cookery. An enigmatic figure, Blot came to America as a refugee from Napoleonic France and in 1865 he opened Professor Blot's Culinary Academy of Design in New York City, arguably the first French cooking school in America. This book is an extension of these classes, in which he taught that French cookery emphasized the "good things in life" making one's mind and body better.
