Product Description

About the Author

Eliza Acton (1799-1860) was born in Sussex, and, apart from some time spent in France, lived for much of her life at Bordyke House in Tonbridge, where she kept house for her mother. Modern Cookery, first published in 1845, was her first cookery book and quickly gained wide acclaim for its practical, step-by-step approach. Delia Smith has called Acton 'the best writer of recipes in the English language'.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was originally published in 1845 and contains a wide variety of recipes including salads, soups, curries, meats, jams and puddings. The recipes are clear enough for the modern cook to follow if desired - I don't know about you, but I won't be cooking fresh young peas for an hour! Some recipes are more inspiring and I was pleased to find a few footnotes here and there to help. Whilst I was expecting to find a French influence in a book of this period I was surprised that some recipes crept in from further afield. The author is also enthusiastic about truffles and salsify in the same way that some present day chefs are and gives the book a modern tone in places which I did not expect.
