The Art Of Cookery Made Plain And Easy by Hannah Glasse (1708 - 1770).



Quote:
Although this recording has been made using the 1784 version, the original book of The Art of Cookery, Made Plain and Easy was first published by subscription in 1747 by Hannah Glasse and was a compilation of the recipes typical for British meals produced in the kitchens of the more affluent classes in the 1700s.

It will become obvious to the reader (and listener) of this (audio)book that Hannah Glasse was a very experienced and consummate cook totally focussed on preparing and presenting a wholesome and varied range of fare for the family and guests of the household in the most economic and efficient manner possible.

In the book’s foreword – ‘To The Reader’ - Hannah Glasse states that she has ‘not wrote in the high polite style’ but rather it is her intent to ‘instruct the lower sort’ in their own way. By writing in her practical no-nonsense manner she is able to instil confidence in anyone who follows her recipes and advice to be able to produce an almost infinite variety of meals using whatever ingredients are available at the time.

If you are looking for recipes for ‘Fancy Food’ then this book is not for you. But if you are interested in discovering how some of the best, wholesome, ‘stick to your ribs’ meals were created, then join me in the kitchen to find out what some of the finest 18th century British cuisine has to offer.

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I'll join the kitchen team, too, as MC :)

ETA:
Here is a MW. We can shorten the filename more, if you like, but it is fine as it is :) I edited the first post so that the end silence is 5 seconds, no matter how long the recording is.

Please let me know if you need anything!

Thanks for setting up Kathrine! So that's you, me & Dave running around the kitchen with sharp pointy utensils - what could possibly go wrong? :shock:

I'd like to keep the filename thanks. There are over 40 editions of this book and who knows - there could be others who just might want to record some different versions in the future.

I forgot to edit the 5 second requirement - thanks for that.

A couple of things:

Is there a limit on the length for entries in the title field? I've started to edit the MW and section 7 will be the longest entry in the title field for this project.

Will the colon in the title field cause an issue when you transfer the project to archive.org? I know there's a problem with speech marks - " - So thought that I'd better check this one with you.

Cheers

Steve

Good thinking!

Let me check with somebody else on the length and the issue with colon. I think there might be a limit on the lenght, but I have no idea what it is (yet). I haven't heard anything about colon punctuation marks being a problem, but I'll see if anybody has more intelligence. By the way, the work-around for the speech marks is using two single ' marks right next to each other :)

Let's move over to Going Solo

There doesn't seem to be a limit for the title fields -- though I guess some mp3 players might cut off long ones.

Colon is fine, so you can use them to your heart's content :)

Hi Dave

Thanks for PLing the first four sections.

Section 5 is on the menu now!

Also, the inevitable 'bloopers' that appear in my recordings normally end up on the 'Cutting-Room' floor during editing but this one I just had to admit to:

Sounds like something that Lucy (of "I Love Lucy") would faithfully do.

Mrs Glasse has got in in for the sheep big-time in this episode with more recipes for mutton than you can shake a lamb chop at! - So that's dinner sorted then! :)


Thanks for PLing 6 - Section 7 now uploaded.
