Publishers Text

Introduced by Elizabeth David, who calls Acton's MODERN COOKERY FOR PRIVATE FAMILIES, the greatest cookery book in our language: "The young women of today, who love good cooking, will bless Miss Acton for her clarity, for her positive attitude and for the memorable comments and instructions which bejewel her pages". Acton's cookbook was first published in 1845, and has been heavily plagiarized by later cookbook authors.
