Culinary historian

Miss Leslie was the most prolific and most published American cookery authority in the first half of the nineteenth century. In addition to her cookbooks, she authored novels, short stories, works for juveniles, etiquette books, and edited and wrote for numerous magazines. Her Directions (at least 150,000 copies sold) was a longtime best seller and was issued in revised editions. There are modern facsimiles of a number of her books.
