Veral wrote his compact volume The Complete System of Cookery in 1759. William Veral, succeeded his father as master of the White Hart Inn in Lewes, Sussex, and trained under Mssr. St. Clouet, a master cook for the Duke of Newcastle. Young William credits St. Clouet with introducing the 'arts and mysteries of French cooking' to his customers. Gently mocking Englishmen who eat plain mutton chops or only possess one frying-pan, he gives enthusiastic advice on must-have kitchen gadgets and describes enticing dishes such as truffles in French wine and mackerel with fennel.
