Excerpt: ...the flavour, as well as the substance, of any dish that might be doomed to undergo this ordeal. First of all, I would refer you to such receipts on semi-roasting joints, such as beef, veal, mutton, pork, and lamb, done in the bakingstewing-pan, and proceed in this instance precisely the same. In respect to vegetables, puddings, rice, &c.

AN IMPROVED BAKING-DISH. (For drawing of which see Appendix at end of book.) I Beo to inform you that I have had made, at a very trifling expense, an improved baking-dish. Its principles are as follows: on the rim of the dish, I have attached a moveable false grating of wire, to the middle of which is fixed a trivet, three inches in height. I then put the pudding at the bottom of the dish, then put in the grating, on which I place the potatoes- then on the trivet I put the meat. By this Means the surplus fat, which would otherwise fall in the pudding and prevent its setting, descends on the potatoes, making them delicate and crisp. This is applicable to any joint, and the meat being more elevated than usual when placed in the oven, causes it to partake more of the flavour of a roast joint than it does when put immediately over the pudding or potatoes, the vapours arising from which soddens the meat, instead of leaving it brown and well carbonized.
