The Complete Confectioner by Hannah Glasse (1708 - 1770).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/complete-confectioner-by-hannah-glasse/
The original version of Hannah Glasse’s 'The Complete Confectioner' was first produced about 1760 but the publication referenced here is from the year 1800 (some thirty years after her death) with considerable additions and corrections made by Maria Wilson, who played a significant part in editing this version of the book.

'The Complete Confectioner' gives an insight not only into a diverse range of recipes for desserts, sweet confections and sweetmeats popular for the dining table in 18th & 19th century Britain but also numerous instructions for pickling and preserving fruit and vegetables as well. And, as you might expect from Hannah Glasse’s original cookery book, 'The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy', you will find that the recipes and instructions presented here have been penned in her own inimitable no-nonsense style.

So, please join me and Mrs Glasse as we again enter the kitchen and fire up the ovens and hopefully inspire you to re-create a number of these long-forgotten classic recipes that were enjoyed in centuries past. (Steve C)

    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!

Hi Dave

Thanks for setting up MW etc - Sections 1 / 2 / 3 now uploaded.

I have given Section 1 the title: 'Book Matters'. which has allowed me to incorporate the Title page (which gives the listener a succinct overview of the entire book), the Preface, Dedication and a 'Seasons' page. Individually, these pages were too short to section by themselves - I hope that this will be OK?

Sections 2 & 3 (and the others (mostly!)) follow the layout of the book.

Thanks for that - I really hope that some of the listeners might be tempted to try a few of the recipes - I'll let you know of any that I attempt, although I'm not promising to post my results up on Instagram! :)

Cheers

Booms! Has an explosive sound to it. Kind of Monty Python.
