Excerpt from Par Excellence: A Manual of Cookery, Containing Choice Recipes, Contributed and Approved by the Best Housekeepers Skilled in Cuisine, the Whole Carefully Arranged and Compiled for St. Agnes Guild of the Church of the Epiphany, by a Committee Much of value that relates to modern cuisine lives not on the pages of cook books, but rather in recipes, directions and suggestions, passed oftentimes from mouth to mouth, hand to hand, penciled on some fly leaf, sent in a letter, pinned up here and pasted there. Of late much attention has been bestowed upon domestic cookery; costly and valuable treatises have always been in the market, and new ones on the subject are constantly appearing, but all these more or less lack the originality and force imparted by the skill and experience of the frugal housewife. The Guild has therefore sought to preserve the unwritten, legendary and traditional by obtaining, when possible, the original recipes from the most skillful and successful housekeepers, together with their suggestions and directions, added from experience. This publication has no pretension as a treatise? but is to be regarded rather as a sort of condiment, an appetizer, a delicacy in the art, so that by its use the action required of the housewife in preparing daily for the continual round of meals may not be confined to the cook-room, but legitimately transferred to the table - to the appetites of those that gather round it.
