Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management

Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management
by Isabella Beeton
  A founding text of Victorian middle-class identity, Household Management is today one of the great unread classics. To the modern reader expecting stuffy moralizing and watery vegetables, Beeton's book is a revelation: it ranges widely across the foods of Europe and beyond, actively embracing new foodstuffs and techniques, mixing domestic advice with discussions of science, religion, class, industrialism and gender roles.
