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)
