Firmly of the belief that a home should be run as an efficient military campaign, Mrs. Beeton, the doyenne of English cookery, offers timeless tips on selecting cuts of meat, throwing a grand party and hosting a dinner, as well as giving suggestions on staff wages and the cost of each recipe. With such delicious English classics as rabbit- pie, carrot soup, baked apple custard, and fresh lemonade - as well as invalid's jelly for those days when stewed eels may be a little too much - this is a wonderful collection of food writing from the matriarch of modern housekeeping.

About the Author:

Isabella Beeton (1836-1865) was one of twenty-one siblings. Between 1859-1861, she wrote articles on cooking and household management for her husband's publications. The collection of these articles became the single volume The Book of Household Management, a guide to all aspects of running a household in Victorian Britain that included not only recipes, homemade remedies and how to deal with servants pay but also smaller yet surprising subjects such as violence, cruelty and death. It remains a classic piece of domestic literature, providing us with invaluable insight into the Victorian household. Beeton died just four years after its publication at the age of 28.
