More Description

Mrs Beeton was the Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay and Martha Stewart of the Nineteenth Century, all rolled into one She was the homemaker and cook par excellence and her name has gone into the lore of domestic management as the titular goddess of house and hearth. In many ways she was typical of the supreme self confidence and staggering versatility of the High Victorian era, a period which saw the apex of the British Empire, and men and women who rose to fuel its mandate, both at home and abroad. This reproduces the Diamond Jubilee Edition which was published in 1897, when the Queen Empress Victoria had been on the throne for 60 years. It forms part of the Impala Victorian Series, which also includes Mrs Beeton's Hors d'Oeuvres & Savouries and Never Nonplussed by Peter Keene.
