The Pantropheon : or, a history of food and its preparation in ancient times, embellished with forty-one engravings illustrating the greatest gastronomic marvels of antiquity by Alexis Soyer( Book )

32 editions published between 1853 and 2013 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in 1853 in Boston, The Pantropheon provides a fascinating history of food focusing on the table of classical antiquity. Author Alexis Soyer was a renowned "gastronomic genius" in his day, as well as a chef and culinary writer. With beautiful black-and-white illustrations, Soyer presents a wealth of information about food in ancient times: agriculture, milling, recipes, mythological origin, ingredients, utensils, exotic dishes, dining habits and customs, and spices and seasonings. Within this cornucopia of food history, Soyer calls upon Jean Anthelme Brillat Savrin's quote, "Tell me what thou eatest and I will tell thee who thou art" to perfectly capture the essence of his tome, and it is precisely for this reason that his compendium is still culturally significant today and widely read among historians, food writers, and chefs.This edition of The Pantropheon, or, History of Food, and Its Preparation was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the society is a research library documenting the lives of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection comprises approximately 1,100 volumes
The modern housewife, or, Ménagère. Comprising nearly one thousand receipts, for the economic and judicious preparation of every meal of the day, and those for the nursery and sick room; and minute directions for family management in all its branches. Illustrated with engravings including the modern housewife's unique kitchen, and magic stove by Alexis Soyer( Book )

74 editions published between 1849 and 2013 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La presse contemporaine, dont le livre contient des extraits, ne tare pas d'éloges pour l'auteur, ce "great Napoleon of Gastronomy" ("Sun"), dont les publications ne feront pas seulement oublier les classiques de la cuisine anglaise de Mme Rundell ou de Mme Glass ("Observer"), mais aussi les manuels français: "We know nothing of the kind even in France, where between the vulgar "Cuisinier Bourgeois" and the exalted "Cuisinier Royal" there is no good, and domestic, and economic guide" ("Daily News"). Les ménagères anglaises lui marqueront une éternelle gratitude, "even after the names of Ude and Carême have sunk to oblivion" ("Dispatch"). Ces éloges un peu nationalistes ne manquent pas d'une certaine ironie: en fait, malgré sa solide implantation dans la tradition culinaire anglaise, Soyer s'est très largement inspiré de la cuisine française comme le montrent ses recettes pour les "Eggs au beurre" (no 14), le "lait de poule" (72), la "Printanière soup" (191), le "French Pot-au-feu" (126), les "Herrings baked the Boulogne way" (254) et autres "Cutlets à la victime" (489)
