Published in 1792 in Philadelphia, The New Art of Cookery was the first cookbook published specifically for an American market that included New World ingredients, and it was unique until publication of Amelia Simmons's groundbreaking American-authored cookbook, American Cookery. While author Richard Briggs was a British culinary writer, he adapted this extensive collection of recipes for American cuisine and ingredients, as evidenced in the numerous recipes for turkey and stuffing a turkey. Highlighting the wide array of delectable meals available in the colonies in the late 18th century, The New Art of Cookery included recipes such as green pea soup, stewing oysters, broiling leg of turkey, baking herring, frying artichokes, lobster pie, and potato puddings, as well as Directions for Seafaring Men, Directions for the Sick, and How to Keep Garden Vegetables. With its wealth of information and wide array of recipes, The New Art of Cookery was understandably essential to the 18th century cook, and it is of great historical significance today. This edition of The New Art of Cookery, According to the Present Practice was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the society is a research library documenting the lives of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience.
