Description

This book presents a charming evocation of kitchen life from the Victorian era right up to 1939, with details of the ingredients - fresh and packaged - the menus, equipment and the kitchen regulars, from cook to passing tradesmen. With wonderful illustrations of food packaging and advertising, this is a great nostalgic look at life below stairs in the age of Victoria. It features topics from the patent marmalade machine to the early anti-bacterial preparations. This offers a wonderfully illustrated look at food and kitchen life in the past. It also discusses topics from cook's relations with her mistress to classic menus; and traditional cooking techniques that are being revived today.
