By Auguste Escoffier

If the paintings of Cookery in all its branches weren't under-
going a strategy of evolution, and if its canons will be once
and for ever fastened, as are these of convinced clinical operations
and mathematical tactics, the current paintings might have no
raison d'etre; inasmuch as there exist already numerous excellent
culinary text-books within the English language. yet everything
is so risky in those instances of development at any expense, and social
customs and strategies of lifestyles regulate so speedily, few years
now suffice to alter thoroughly the face of usages which at
their inception bade reasonable to survive the age — so enthusiastically
were they welcomed via the public.

In regard to the traditions of the festal board, it's but
twenty years in the past because the ancestral English customs all started to
make manner sooner than the more recent tools, and we needs to glance to the
great impetus given to traveling by way of steam traction and naviga-

Modern society shriveled the behavior of participating of light
suppers in those areas, after the theatres of the Metropolis
had closed; and the well-to-do started to flock to them on
Sundays, in an effort to supply their servants the necessary weekly
rest. And, considering eating places permit of staring at and of being
observed, considering the fact that they're eminently tailored to the showing of
magnificent clothes, it used to be no longer lengthy prior to they entered into
the lifetime of Fortune's favourites.

which they have been to be practised. The admirable productions
popularised by way of the previous Masters of the Culinary artwork of the pre-

atmosphere of eating places ; have been, in truth, ill-suited to the brisk
waiters, and their consumers who basically had eyes for one another.

HPLC grade methanol, water, and toluene were obtained from Burdick & Jackson Laboratories, Inc. (Muskegon, MI), acetyl chloride was obtained from Sigma-Aldrich Chemical Co. (Milwaukee, WI), and sodium carbonate and Ottawa Sand Standard (20-30 mesh) were obtained from Fischer Scientific (Houston, TX). The internal standard, ell triglyceride (triundecanoin), was obtained from Nu-Check Prep, Inc. (Elysian, MN). CO2 (SFC/SFE grade) with helium headspace was supplied by Air Products and Chemicals, Inc.

Extracts were analyzed for fatty acid composition, fat-soluble vitamin and y-oryzanol content. Extractions were then conducted on all the processing samples for mass balancing (H20, N and lipids) at the highest extraction conditions (690 bar, 80°C). The proximate analysis of water, total nitrogen and total lipids along the process was conducted. 54% of the total nitrogen was still in the white rice, while 72% of the oil was in the bran. Figure 2 shows the extraction curves of rice bran oil collected as a function of the amount of CO 2 used.

Saito et al. (23) and Dunford and King (24, 25) used SC-C02 to fractionate rice bran oil by SFF. Their results are extended by the present study to take advantage of the effect of SC-C02 extraction eventually combined with SC-C02 fractionation to over again increase the value of rice by-products. Other Examples of SC-COz-Extracted Wastes and ByProducts Szentmihalyi et al. (26) studied a rose waste material, and a valuable oil was obtained for medicinal use. Traditional Soxhlet extraction was compared with ultrasound, microwave assisted, and sub- and SC-C02 extraction.
