This review is from: Beeton's Book of Household Management (Southover historic cookery & housekeeping series) (Southover Press Historic Cookery & Housekeeping) (Hardcover)
This is an absolute gem of a book whether you are studying social history or just have an interest in lifestyles and cookery from the 19th century. It covers everything from running a household, etiquette to cookery and home medicines. (I do not recommend trying the latter as times have moved on - but make an interesting read) The pictures are superb and the recipies are a challenge but good fun to try. The household management section is a real eyeopener for historians and interested people alike. This book would make a fabulous christmas present for any 'lady/gentleman of the house' or aspiring cooks.
