It was a bestseller for a century after its first publication, dominating the English-speaking market and making Glasse one of the most famous cookbook authors of her time. It is still used as a reference for food research and historical reconstruction. The book ran through at least 40 editions, many of them were copied without explicit author consent. It was popular in the Thirteen Colonies of America, and its appeal survived the American War of Independence, with copies being owned by Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington."
