Photograph of Far Breton[edit]

Hello to all. This is my first visit to the maze of Wikipedia other than a seeker of information, so please forgive me if my ignorance is obvious. I would like to propose a photograph I took to illustrate the List of French Dishes under the subheading of Brittany. The photograph is here: I would be most grateful for any response to this message. Thank you for your time. Easyfrenchfood (talk) 14:59, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Who was the abroad friend?[edit]

Who was the abroad friend? Nicolas Appert's book Le Livre de tous les ménages ou l’art de conserver pendant plusieurs années toutes les substances animales et végétales appears in June 1810. The following August 25, Peter Durand file a patent where he says use a method communicated to him by a person residing abroad : « When I received from a friend abroad, more than a year ago, a communication of the discovery above described ». More than a year ago = therefore in 1809.

Who was this friend?
According to the letter Appert (ref F12 2384 French National Archives), Philippe Girard went to England in 1810 after acquiring the book. So it's not him.
According to the edition of Le Livre de tous les ménages in 1831, a Gérard went to England with the book. So post in June 1810. So it's not him.
Who is he?

Gordon L. Robertson, in his bookFood packaging: principles and practice,2d ed., CRC Press, Taylor & Francis, 2006, wrote at page 123: « The latest account, based on extensive research of early nineteenth century archives, has thrown additional light on those involved in the genesis of the canning industry » with a note No. 3.
I have no access to this book. And you ? Can you read it at the library? What does the note 3? What are this extensive research ?
Thank you already, sorry for my bad English, --Égoïté (talk) 06:29, 17 June 2010 (UTC)

Citric Acid - expansion suggestion[edit]

I feel there is a completeness issue with the otherwise (as far as I am competent to assess it) well written entry on citric acid.

Basically, IMO - the article could benefit from including information about the principal sources of raw materials for citric acid and the industrial process(es) involved in its production.

Thank you,
