            A Guide to Modern Cookery [Le Guide Culinaire]

Escoffier, A. [Georges Auguste Escoffier (28 October 1846 - 12 February 1935) was a French chef, restaurateur and culinary writer who popularised and updated traditional French cooking methods. Much of Escoffier's technique was based on that of Marie-Antoine Carême (8 June 1784 - 12 January 1833), one of the codifiers of French haute cuisine, but Escoffier's achievement was to simplify and modernise Carême's elaborate and ornate style. [Mairi Mackenzie (1 March 1879 - 23 July 1953) was the daughter of Osgood Hanbury Mackenzie (1842-1922). In 1862 he had purchased the Inverewe Estate near Poolewe, Scotland, and set to work to establish a 50 acre garden on an unpromising coastal site].

(Book #ID 100753)

Published by William Heinemann Ltd., London First English Translated Edition 1907. 1907.

First English translated edition hard back binding in publisher's original forest green cloth covers, gilt title and author lettering to the spine, M. Mackenzie in gilt to the front cover. 8vo. 9½'' x 6¼''. The first edition was printed in 1903 in French, this second edition was published in 1907, the third in 1912, and the current fourth edition in 1921. Contains photographic frontispiece portrait with tissue-guard, 880 printed pages of text. From Mairi Mackenzie with lovely illustrated family bookplate looking out over Loch Ewe from Inverewe House to the front free end paper, text across the top of the bookplate 'Some in the Sun and Some in the Shade' referring to plants grown at Inverewe, below her printed name 'Mairi Mackenzie'. Slight age tanning to the text block edges and down the spine, rubbing to the corners, spine ends rolled over and in Very Good square and tight condition. By the time Mairi was born, Osgood Mackenzie was 17 years into his lifelong project. Her parent's marriage broke down while she was still young, and she seems to have spent part of her time with her mother. However, it seems that while still a child she became enthused with her father's vision and worked alongside him to help turn it into reality. In 1907 at the age of 28, Mairi married Robert Hanbury. When Osgood Mackenzie died in 1922, the work of completing Inverewe Garden was carried forward by Mairi. Robert Hanbury died in 1933, and in 1935 Mairi married Ronald Sawyer, a landowner and farmer. Together they rebuilt Inverewe House, which had stood ruined since a serious fire in 1914, and under their stewardship, her father's dreams of Inverewe Garden developed into reality.

            Alexis Soyer Cook Extraordinary

Ray, Elizabeth [Foreword by Prue Leith] Alexis Bénoit Soyer (4 February 1810 - 5 August 1858) was a French celebrity chef who became the most celebrated cook in Victorian England. He also tried to alleviate suffering of the Irish poor in the Great Irish Famine (1845–1849), and contributed a penny for the relief of the poor for every copy sold of his pamphlet The Poor Man's Regenerator (1847). He worked to improve the food provided to British soldiers in the Crimean War. A variant of the field stove he invented at that time, known as the "Soyer stove", remained in use with the British army until 1982.
