" What a pity," rejoined Guloseton, " that Ude, whose practical science was so perfect, should ever have written, or suffered others to write, the work published under his name; true it is that the opening part which you have so feelingly recited, is composed with a grace, a charm beyond the reach of art; but the instructions are vapid, and frequently so erroneous, as to make me suspect their authenticity; but, after all, cooking is not capable of becoming a written science- it is the philosophy of practice!"- "Pelham, Complete", Edward Bulwer-Lytton Last Updated: March 16, 2009.
