To the Master Cooks, and to such young Practitioners of the Art of Cookery, to whom this Book may be useful. TO you first, most worthy Artists, I acknowledg one of the chief Motives that made me to adventure this Volume to your Censures, hath been to testifie my gratitude to your experienced Society; nor could I omit to direct it to you, as it hath been my ambition, that you should be sensible of my Proficiency of Endeavours in this Art. To all honest well intending Men of our Profession, or others, this Book cannot but be acceptable, as it plainly and profitably discovers theMysteryof thewhole Art; for which, though I may beenvied by some that only value their private Interests above Posterity, and the publick good, yet God and my own Conscience would not permit meto bury these my Experiences with my Silver Hairs in the Grave: and that more especially, as the advantages of my Education hath raised me above theAmbitionsin the converse I have had with otherof others, Nations, who in thisArtfall short of what Ihave known experimented by you my worthy Country men. Howsoever, the French b their Insinuations, not without enou h of I norance,
