Controlling a household of great power and prestige, she laid down the guidelines in her Household Book that created a framework from which to run Alnwick Castle. To this day, it contains advice that is not only fascinating, but also highly relevant to life today. Compiling many of the Household Book's wonderful recipes for puddings and preserves, and featuring what is thought to be the oldest known recipe for marmalade, this book will appeal to everyone with an interest in cooking, household management, and social history.
