"Major Joseph Tilden was in his time one of the most famous Bohemians and epicureans of the Pacific Coast.

"About ten years ago the idea of writing a little cook book had its birth. We were in Almora that summer. Almora is a station far up in the Himalayas, a clean little bazaar nestles at the foot of enclosing mountains. Before we knew it we were planning a cook book.

"The compiler having entered early in life upon a train of duties, was frequently embarrassed by her ignorance of domestic affairs. For, whilst receipt books for elegant preparations were often seen, those connected with the ordinary, but far more useful part of household duties, were not easily procured; thus situated, she applied to persons of experience [...] to which, since years have matured her judgment, she has added much that is the result of her own experiments."
