was a culinary celebrity. I just wrote a blog about antique cooking and baking books. Your Grandfather wrote, at least, five such books.

Here's the link to my blog entry.

Thank you, very much, for your posting. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a biography for him, but he must have been a household name in the Victorian and Edwardian kitchens.
