The Menon Cookbook is perhaps one of the most famous 18th-century cookbook ever published. While the true identity of the author is never revealed, he is generally referred to as Menon. ‘La Cuisiniere Bourgeoise” is one of the best-known and oft reprinted cookbooks and features hundreds of recipes and food preparations along with beer and wine making, ingredients, and strategies for cooking. Menon is known to include fewer seasonings and ingredients that are cheaper thus creating a sense of ‘lower-class’ food; even though Menon focuses on beautiful and eye-appealing dishes.

 

This cookbook was also known to be the very first cookbook devoted specifically to a woman cook. Menon himself said that the title could be read as either cuisine or woman cook. Either way it answered a real need in France of female home-cooks along with recipes acceptable for the bourgeois. (Willan, 218-225). It was also the only cookbook to reissued following the French Revolution. (Abramson, 22)

 

 This 1767 edition, labeled a new edition, is printed with several new recipes of stews and liqueurs that were not included in earlier printings.
