If the artwork of Cookery in all its branches weren't less than-
going a means of evolution, and if its canons should be as soon as
and for ever fastened, as are these of yes clinical operations
and mathematical methods, the current paintings could don't have any
raison d'etre; inasmuch as there exist already a number of very good

the fingers of these very contributors of it who've profited by means of
the alterations I discuss with.

For it was once purely with the view of assembly the various and
