The Epicure's Almanack PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Epicure's Almanack free pdf A fully annotated edition of The Epicure's Almanack, or Guide to Good Living, a listing of more than 650 eating establishments, taverns, hotels, inns etc, in and around London, investigated and engagingly described by Ralph Roylance (1782 - 1834). Working single-handedly and on foot, Roylance visited eateries ranging from City chop houses to humble tripe shops, as well as London's first Indian restaurant, ancient coaching inns, suburban tea gardens and dockyard taverns. He ended his book with an account of London's markets, an inventory of merchants selling everything from anchovy sauce to kitchen ranges, and an 'alimentary calendar'. Published in 1815, it was not updated or reprinted (and is consequently a very rare book). Indeed it was never really emulated until 1968, when the Good Food Guide to London was first issued.
