Book Description

Robinson writes clear precise instructions with elegance. His recipes cover fishes, meats, fruits, vegetables and conclude with 'Good Currie Powder'. With his 18 years of experience, he gives 'the assurance that, if the directions therein contained be strictly observed, the articles will not fail to reward the labour and trifling expense bestowed in their production'.
