A charming evocation of Victorian life, this delightful volume details the fresh and packaged ingredients, the menus, equipment, and the kitchen regulars—from cook to passing tradesmen—of the 19th-century kitchen. With wonderful illustrations of Victorian food packaging and advertising, this is a great nostalgic look at life below stairs in the age of Victoria.
