Summary A fascinating and deeply researched behind-the-scenes journey into Victorian-era kitchens, with authentic nineteenth-century techniques, tips, and recipes. Have you ever wondered what life was like for domestic servants, the etiquette involved during upper class banquets, or simply wished for a glimpse of day-to-day life in the Victorian kitchen? During the nineteenth century, the kitchen was a place where culinary worlds collided, bridging the gap between social classes. From the rural cottage to the well-staffed country house, Karen Foy takes readers on an entertaining and informative journey through a lost culinary world, uncovering the customs, traditions, and history surrounding some of Britain's best loved dishes. Discover nineteenth-century tips, techniques, stories, and superstitions. Try your hand at using an egg to foretell the future, or timeless recipes for everything from apple wine to sheep's head pie.
