ACTON.   ELIZA     - Her rare second book.
The English Bread-Book
FOR DOMESTIC USE, ADAPTED TO FAMILIES OF EVERY GRADE: CONTAINING THE PLAINEST AND MOST MINUTE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LEARNER; PRACTICAL RECEIPTS FOR MANY VARIETES OF BREAD; WITH NOTICES OF THE PRESENT SYSTEM OF ADULTERATION, AND ITS CONSEQUENCES; AND OF THE IMPROVED BAKING PROCESSES AND INSTITUTIONS ESTABLISHED ABROAD. BY ELIZA ACTON. AUTHOR OF “MODERN COOKERY.” LONDON; LONGMAN, BROWN, GREEN, LONGMANS & ROBERTS. 1857. All right of translation is reserved.
FIRST AND SOLE EDITION. 8vo. 178 X 115mm. 1fep. Half title illustration of wheat sheaves with text and quote - "In no way, perhaps, is the progress of a nation in civilisation more unequivocally shown, than in the improvement which it realises in the food of the community." [1] (1)vi Preface. (1)viii – xii Contents. (1)2 – 204. (1)2 – 24 Advertisements. 1fep. Bound in original brown cloth with bright gilt design of wheat sheaves and text on cover. The back has a few water stains. The original spine expertly re-laid with the original gilt writing intact, slightly browned. Clean, tight and bright, with even very light age-browning through out. A fine original copy.
- This was the last of Eliza Acton's books. It is not only a collection of bread recipes of all sorts, from household bread to Sally Lunns, but also encompasses Acton's strong opinions about adulterated and processed food. It is also a polemic on unhealthy eating which is still relevant 150 years later. Although she was a firm believer in home baking, she also advocated machine dough; mixed in clean commercial bakeries, compared with the filthy conditions and hard lives of the English bakers of the time; But would she have been quite so pleased, had she foreseen the over-processed, chemically stabilised, glyphosate riddled supermarket breads of today.? The book also has chapters on different flours, yeasts, ovens and baking tips for beginners. Although it created a sensation when it first came out in 1857, unfortunately, as it was published two years before her death in 1859, it was never reprinted, and subsequently is now a rare book .

- Elizabeth 'Eliza' Acton, an English poet and cook, produced and aimed this cookbook at the domestic reader rather than the professional cook or chef. In it she introduced the now-universal practice of listing the ingredients and suggested cooking times with each recipe. Isabella Beeton's bestselling 'Book of Household Management' of 1861 was closely modeled on it. Elizabeth David rated it one of the best nineteenth century cookery books, and television cook Delia Smith is quoted as having called Acton "the best writer of recipes in the English language". 'Modern Cookery' long survived her, remaining in print until 1914 and available more recently in facsimile reprint. Acton was born April 17th 1799 in Battle, Sussex, the eldest of the five children of Elizabeth Mercer and John Acton, a brewer. The family moved to Suffolk shortly after her birth, and there she was raised. At the age of seventeen she and another woman opened a school for girls in Claydon, near Ipswich, which remained open for four years. Her health was precarious and she spent some time in France where she is rumoured to have had an unhappy love affair. She published her Poems in 1826 after returning home and they enjoyed some small success. She subsequently published some single, longer poems, but it was her 'Modern Cookery' of 1845 that garnered her the widest acclaim. Shortly after its publication she relocated to London, where she worked on her next and final book, 'The English Bread Book' of 1857. Along with recipes and a scholarly history of bread-making, this volume contained Acton's strong opinions about adulterated and processed food. Acton, her health never strong, died in February 13th, 1859, and was buried in Hampstead, North London.

Adria.   Ferran     - A signed copy.
A Day at elBulli - An insight into the ideas, methods and creativity of Ferran Adria
Ferran Adria - Juli Soler - Albert Adria. A Printer's icon. (The printer "Phaidon").
300 x 220mm x 60mm thick. Large heavy 4to. Bright yellow paste-down and fep. Adria's signature and dedication: "22.11.11 Pour le table de chefs et Bobby Hendry - Ferran Adria". 1 fep. Title page. 4-528. Bright yellow on fep and on paste-down. Same bright yellow covers and spine with white dw. As new and very collectable especially with signed inscription.
- Ferran Adria, whom many of the top European chefs have agreed at various times, is the best chef in the world. His book is a sumptuous production with numerous photographs detailing every aspect of planning, production and service at 'elBulli', his famous restaurant, now closed, situated about one hour by car north of Barcelona. The book also provides many in-depth glimpses of Aria's philosophy, with the inside cover declaring there had been 2,000,000 booking requests annually, with only 8,000 places available. (this is hard to reconcile; if it takes one minute to process each booking request, this would take 33,333 hours. If we assume each employee at elBulli is working a ten hour day, then that alone takes 3,333.3 days. If we assume that the requests are being dealt with 365 days a year that would need 9-10 people constantly processing the requests all those hours and days). One smells grand hyperbole! Boldly proclaiming itself to be the best restaurant in the world, a trawl thro' the internet to read some of the critics opinions shows that not all agree. It is a very heavy book. Not to be taken for holiday reading, as the cost of the excess baggage alone, would require a bank loan. When all is said, it is still an absorbing read and eye opener, and gives a large glimpse of the creative spirit of a master Chef.

- In the first volume - elBulli, 2003, the double page b/w photograph shows a kitchen brigade of 34 chefs and 16 waiters. This is a massive staff although not surprising. Adria's cuisine reminds me of the labour-intensive nature of making Canapes. One also gets the impression that He is also inspired by the bite sized Tapas, Japanese Sushi and possibly Chinese Dim-sum. In elBulli each meal consists of very many varied small bites. Ferran Adria definitely wants to take his cuisine to a level that has not been seen before and that defies description. He himself uses a nomenclature that could be called obtuse. At best he is uses descriptions that the layperson would not be able conceptualise, creating a mystique that may please him. Although Adria and his key staff are not above using all the details in these books themselves, one sees a highly detailed preparation process with very intricate presentation. Adria also has an experimental kitchen in Barcelona opposite the great public market - La Bouqeria, that displays the freshest of meats, fish, fruits and vegetables. The abundance of all the exotic and expensive produce available, is beyond compare. So, no surprise that Ferran Adria and his brother Albert must use the market to stimulate inspiration and ideas. This experimentation and the logging and filing thereof, is meticulous. It is the key central attribute that defines the quality of Adria's cuisine. This is what one reads and sees in these great tomes. Prepare to be amazed and mystified.

- Quoting from the Book; "From 1998 to 2002 the elBulli tasting menu acquired an almost definitive structure providing the ideal vehicle for serving diners of multiple elaborations that enabled them to appreciate the whole gastronomic offering every season. The Catalogue details 371 dishes and presents an evolutionary analysis during those five years". To put this important book into a context, it's necessary to know something of Ferran Adria's background and how He and elBulli came about, and why the culinary influence and impact was so important and far-reaching. On the elbulli Foundation website online, a potted biography can be seen that is worth repeating here verbatim:- Ferran Adrià Acosta, born May 14th, 1962, in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona, Spain, attends the local Casal dels Àngels School and then goes to San Isidro School in Barcelona, while living with his parents, Ginés, a plasterer, and Josefa, a housewife, and his brother Albert. His passion is football, and he plays with the Juventud de l’Hospitalet club until 1974 and with Santa Eulàlia F.C. until 1980. At this moment he has almost no interest in cooking, typical of a boy of his age. In 1977 he enters Instituto Politécnico de la Merced to take administrative studies, as a prelude to a degree in Business Studies. In 1980, he decides to give up his studies, preferring to make some money so that he can go on holiday to Ibiza. With this aim, by chance he begins his culinary career modestly, going to work as a dishwasher at the Playafels Hotel in Castelldefels, near L’Hospitalet. There, chef Miquel Moy, a close friend of his father, helps him to become familiar with basic culinary techniques. A few months later, in 1981, he starts work at the Club Cala Leña, in Es Canà, Ibiza. After four months, he returns to Barcelona, performing varied tasks in establishments such as El Suquet, Castell Arnau and Martinique. In 1982 he finds a job in the prestigious Finisterre restaurant, staying there until he leaves to do military service, on July 2nd, 1982. From mid-1982 until the end of 1983, Ferran does his military service in Cartagena, forming part of the team working in the Admiral’s kitchen. Here, for the first time, he takes charge of the kitchen. Assuming such responsibilities serves as an important experience for him. Following a suggestion from Fermí Puig, another Catalan recruit, who works at elBulli, Ferran spends his month’s leave in the summer of 1983 at the restaurant in Cala Montjoi. At the end of his military service, he works at the San Marcos restaurant in Seville from January to March 1984. Then, in April 1984, he joins the team of elBulli occupying the position of Chef de Partie. On November 1st, following the departure of Head Chef, Jean-Paul Vinay, Juli Soler, elBulli’s Director, offers Ferran and Christian Lutaud the position of joint Head Chefs. Juli Soler encourages Ferran to travel around France and learn more about the world of Haute Cuisine. Ferran undertakes two stages in the kitchens of Georges Blanc and Jacques Pic. In October 1986, Christian Lutaud leaves elBulli and Ferran assumes sole responsibility. From 1987 Ferran decides to pursue his own ideas in the kitchen, leaving aside the Nouvelle Cuisine style of the restaurant. He begins by using ingredients, techniques, and local and regional elaborations, interpreting them through his vision of Haute Cuisine. Up until 1993 this “Mediterranean style” defines the cuisine of elBulli and exerts an important influence on the Catalan and Spanish cuisine of this period. In 1990 elBulli S.L. is created, a company founded by Juli Soler and Ferran Adrià, developing different lines and models of business. elBulli S.L. reinvests 20% of its turnover in pursuing creativity. elBullirestaurante functions as the R & D department of a company that manages consultancy and assessment for catering companies and the food industry, whilst always placing its commitment to avant-garde cuisine as its foremost concern. This model enables the radical nature of elBulli to be maintained. In the early 90s a change in the cooking of Ferran and elBullirestaurante begins to take place, and a series of new concepts, elaborations, techniques and service formats appear alongside the “Mediterranean” dishes, reaching their full expression in 1994. From that time on, a series of constants characterizes the style of elBulli, outlined in the 23-point synthesis of elBulli’s cooking. At the end of 1987 Ferran and Juli decide to make an organisational change, dividing the restaurant season into two parts: six months of restaurant service and six months of closure. Throughout the 90s, the team seek a successful formula for creating a workshop during the six months of restaurant closure, and after trying several locations, elBullitaller is opened in 2000, in Carrer Portaferrissa, Barcelona, becoming the first in the history of haute cuisine. Developing this blueprint, a model of creativity is established that is perfected little by little. In place of creating a dish based on an idea, hundreds of ideas for concepts, techniques and elaborations are introduced during the closed season in elBullitaller, which lead to finished recipes and menus in elBullirestaurante. At the same time all the variables and resources of the process are subjected to a creative audit offering a high level of efficiency and effectiveness, which is key to determining elBulli’s creative longevity. Ferran marries Isabel Pérez in 2002. They do not have any children. 'elBullirestaurante' closes its doors to become 'elBullifoundation'. A fascinating, very unusually formatted, game-changing cookery book.

Thick 4to. 3rd edition 1923. Grey paper paste down. 3feps. Title page with a little light foxing. [1] Half title. [1] (1)2-3 Introduction. [1] 1p Preface. [1] 1p Prodrome de Gastronomie.

[1] 3feps. The original dark blue fine waterproof cloth boards and a very sympathetically relaid spine with the original cloth. With bright gilt lettering on the spine and front board. The guttering has been strengthened and overall a very nice clean copy retaining all the original features.
- This classic French cookery book ‘Gastronomie Pratique’, was first published in 1907 and has been out-of-print since 1950. Written by Henri Babinski, an engineer who wrote under the pen name Ali-Bab. The first eight editions of ‘Gastronomie Pratique’ sold about 35,000 copies over almost half a century. An English translation, printed in 1974, bore the title ‘Encyclopedia of Practical Gastronomy’. Unusually, Babinski’s recipes are quite accurate and do work well with good results. Although the majority of recipes originate from Babinski’s native France, a significant number come from the Middle East, Eastern Europe, the Caribbean, and Latin America. Prior to publishing the first edition at the age of 52, Babinski spent a significant portion of his life as an engineer outside of France. His recipe instructions also provide much more detail than other cookbooks of the period, more like what one expects in a cookbook today. His instructions, too, are footnoted to elucidate their meaning. At the end of most recipes, Babinski offers numerous substitutions and variations. He used or wrote about a wider assortment of ingredients than is common today. Lobster eggs were used to color dishes. Truffles were used with abandon. There are a number of recipes for brains. One assumes that many of the wild game birds he describes were available at his local Paris butcher, but some recipes seem based on game he hunted fresh. Likewise, some recipes call for specific kinds of fish from specific streams. Other ingredients are common to France but generally unavailable elsewhere, e.g., sheep raised on salt marshes. It is unlikely we will find a butcher that can supply a quarter kilo of cock's kidneys! Occasionally, Babinski calls for ingredients that no longer exist, like ‘sirop de capillaire’, a medicinal syrup made from the maidenhead fern. Along with the standard sections expected in a general book of cookery, Babinski includes a few subjects in his book that today seem unexpected — when was the last time you saw a recipe for pig’s ear? The book’s recipes are offered in nineteen sections. Many appear to be of foreign origin rather than French. A lesser known but great book of gastronomical interest and practical instruction. Very under-rated.

Reinventing food
Ferran Adria: THE MAN WHO CHANGED THE WAY WE EAT. by COLMAN ANDREWS (with small phaidon symbol at the bottom of the page).
FIRST EDITION 2010. 240x160 mm. 1fep. Half-title. On verso, photograph of Adria. Title page with Coleman Andrews signature. Verso with symbols in b/w for elBulli foodstuffs. 1p Contents, [1] 7-10 Author's note. 11-22 Introduction. 2p Photographs of Adrian and elBulli. 25-340. b/w photograph of a young Adria. 342-346 Bibliography. 347-350 Acknowledgments. 351-359 Index. [1] 1fep. Grey hardcover with black & red text on front, back and spine. As new inside and out.
- There are some things that are disagreeable as well as interesting about this book. The disconcerting title for one thing. Adria has not changed the way we eat. The guests at his reatuarant 'elBulli' (now closed since 2012) all ate food the same way as everyone else, even in a McDonalds. That is with fingers or a container, a plate, spoon, glass or bowl etc etc. What you can definitely say is that Adria has changed what we eat. The absoluteness of Andrew's title also conveys a sense of Adria's already, far-reaching influence. The chefs who trained with him and who have spread his gastronomic ways are just beginning to make names for themselves in their own right, and Adria's influence is still only growing. The influences of great Cooks and their cookery books, such as Bartolomeo Scappi, Careme, Irma Rombeaur, Escoffier, Elizabeth David and Fernand Point are much more fundamental. What can be agreed is that Ferran Adria's cuisine is a very big gastronomic change from that of the preceding time. Along with food de-constructors and authors like Blumenthal, Redzepi etc, whose changes and innovations are also being recorded in print, we see reactions, positive or negative being expressed with vigour. It does not seem that ambivalence is an option. As always, time will tell whether Adria's cuisine is epoch changing. He will always have critics because a large part of the population are not gastronomically educated, nor have the cash nor luck with a dinner booking to try the more progressive places like 'elBulli' in Spain, or Blumenthal's 'Fat Duck' in UK and Redzepi's 'Noma' in Copenhagen, in which those Chefs are very serious about what they are attempting and offering. There will always be a broad majority of people with good and educated palates who will want the very fresh prawns with a touch of salt of the restaurant 'Inopia' written about in Andrew's introduction. They are what you may call the 'naturists' - who want their fresh food from air, sea and land to the table as quickly as possible with a minimum of fuss in the preparation, cooking and serving, while at the same time tasting exquisite. This is a prime sentiment of Adria's as well; it is no coincidence that his 'elBulli' experimental kitchen and workshop is just across the Ramblas from the great Barcelona market, La Boqueria. There is much about Adria that is likeable, not least in this age of Chef's egos, his unassuming manner, but one thing that persists when assessing him, is his penchant for self-promotion and his ability to market his cuisine, all in a manner reminiscent of Alexis Soyer. Because of this we can be sure Ferran Adria will never be forgotten and one thinks that his influence will grow and be extensive, possibly coming close to matching Andrew Coleman's premature assessment. We can only eat, wait and see.
