Mrs Beeton's Every Day Cookery. C.1930


Shard by Clare Doyle

Although it is 150 years since she died, the name ‘Mrs Beeton’ is instantly recognised around the English-speaking world. Her Book of Household Management contains 2000 recipes and runs to over 1000 pages of authoritative advice on everything from how to treat a cold to what to say during a social call. So it comes as a surprise to learn that Isabella Beeton wrote Household Management when she was in her early 20s and had virtually no personal experience of keeping house.
