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.
