Napoleon might have been gone, but the Spanish interest in all things French had been awakened. The poet Rementeria y Fica here translates and adapts Cardelli's Manuel du cuisinier (1826), a post-revolutionary French cookbook that eschewed both royal and complex restaurant cookery, opting instead for a thriftier version suitable for everyone else. Size: 12mo (duodecimo). Previous owner's signature in ink. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000115.
