Not exactly what it says on the cover,

This review is from: The Best Of Mrs Beeton's Cakes and Baking (Hardcover)
I have given this book three stars because it does have a lot of interesting recipes - but to say that it is by 'Isabella Beeton' is blatantly not true and a huge insult to both history and the reader. It is a fairly good collection of recipes, that is all. Some are derived from Mrs Beeton, a lot are not. There are a few text-box hints from Mrs Beeton, amongst others, no explanation of oven temps (fan or not?) - or overall introduction. At a glance, the recipes (which are given in grams and ounces) are good, clear and easy to follow. It's probably worth having for the recipes, if you can ignore the false premise on which it is being marketed!
