La Varenne's Cookery: The French Cook, the French Pastry Chef, the French Confectioner - hardcover

2006, ISBN: 1903018412

[SR: 1289298], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781903018415], Prospect Books, Prospect Books, Book, [PU: Prospect Books], 2006-02-22, Prospect Books, These three books by Francois Pierre de la Varenne (c. 1615-1678), who was chef to the Marquis d'Uxelles, are the most important French cookery books of the seventeenth century. It was the first French cookery book of any substance since Le Viandier almost 300 years before, and it ran to thirty editions in 75 years. The reason for its success was simply that it was the first book to record and embody the immense advances that French cooking had made, largely under the influence of Italy and the Renaissance, since the fifteenth century. Some characteristics of medieval cookery are still visible, but many have disappeared. New World ingredients make their entrance. A surprising number of recipes for dishes still made in modern times (omelettes, beignets, even pumpkin pie) are given. The watershed from medieval to modern times is being crossed under our eyes in La Varenne's pages. So important was this book that English cooks of the time immediately bought copies and one (anonymous) even translated it into English in the middle of the Puritan rule of Oliver Cromwell.This translation, as is the original, is extremely difficult to understand: there are difficult words, omissions, mistranslations, and other opacities. Terence Scully has solved all modern readers' problems by undertaking a modern translation with detailed commentary of the original French texts. His work takes cognisance of the early English translation, as well as not ignoring contemporary works available to those early cooks for purposes of comparison and contrast. Even French people will want to buy it for what he tells us of the workings of the French kitchen in the seventeenth century., 271096, French, 271072, National & International Cookery, 66, Food & Drink, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271043, Gastronomy, 271071, Reference & Gastronomy, 66, Food & Drink, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271044, History of Food, 271071, Reference & Gastronomy, 66, Food & Drink, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 772148, Social & Economic History, 772152, Health & Welfare, 275907, Imperialism, 771716, Industrialisation, 772156, Inventions, 772154, Protest & Reform, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 772162, Cultural History, 772188, Local & Urban History, 772192, London, 271405, Multicultural History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
