The ladies handmaid Or, A compleat system of cookery; on the principals of elegance and frugality. Wherein the useful art of cookery is rendered plain, easy and familiar: containing the best approved, yet least expensive receipts in every branch of housewifry, viz. roasting, boiling, made-dishes, soups, sauces, jellies, ragouts, fricasses, tarts, cakes, creams, custards, pastry, pickling, jarring, &c. And every other branch of cookery and good housewifery, too tedious to be enumerated in a title page. Together with instructions for carving and bills of fare for every month in the year. Embellished with variety of curious copper-plates, representing the genteelest method of disposing or placing the dishes, trussing fowls, &c. Also the best approved method of clear-starchig.
