Product Description

Product Description

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 was born in London in 1836, one of twenty-one brothers and sisters. Between 1859-1861, Beeton 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, home-made 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 twenty-eight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tea for Two 7 Jan 2012
By Lulu from Philly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was intended for a Christmas gift. The recipient wasn't too thrilled. The entire series published by Penguin Books is really quite clever. They took works by famous individuals, some from the culinary world and reproduced them. I thought it was interesting to read about life in other times. Kudos to Penguin for doing this, anyway!
