This is an 1888 edition of Mrs. Beeton’s BOOK OF HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT, a complete and thorough guide to cookery and the domestic management of Victorian households, particularly upper class households.
Isabella Mary Beeton was one of the most famous cookery writers who ever lived. Popularly known as “Mrs. Beeton,” her legacy persists to this day as her books, first published in the 1860s, are still avidly sought by collectors and modern cooks. Though her rise to fame was meteoric, Mrs. Beeton’s career was unfortunately short-lived: on the day after the birth of her fourth child, in January 1865, Mrs. Beeton contracted puerperal fever and died a week later, at the young age of 28.
Mrs. Beeton’s BOOK OF HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT is a prime collection of more than 2,500 cooking recipes and household receipts. The bulk of the book is devoted to cookery, which was Mrs. Beeton’s specialty. It’s a gold mine of recipes for meats, poultry, game, fish and shellfish, soups, vegetables, breads, cakes and pies, puddings, pastry, sweet dishes and more … There are also chapters on French cookery, Italian, German, Indian … even Australian cookery (kangaroo tail soup, anyone?) If you were to try one recipe a day, every day, it would literally take you years to cook your way through Mrs. Beeton’s BOOK OF HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT.
Planning a Victorian wedding? Dinner? Luncheon? Tea? THE BOOK OF HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT also contains complete illustrated menus for every dining occasion, whether with the family or when entertaining guests – everything from a quiet breakfast to a gala ball . There are also chapters on table decoration, floral arrangements for the table, how to construct a Venetian villa or Chinese pagoda out of sugar paste, and much more.
The household hierarchy is also explained in detail, starting with the role of the Mistress of the House as “the Commander of an Army. There are also chapters outlining the domestic duties and requirements of all household servants, from the butler and housekeeper all the way down to the laundry maid and stable groom. Servants’ daily dress, comportment and responsibilities are all discussed at length, as are the roles of governess and nursemaid. First aid and medical treatments are also included in the chapter for the sick nurse and homeopathist.
THE BOOK OF HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT is profusely illustrated with hundreds of delightful engravings and other illustrations, including many full-color, full-page plates.
Obviously this book is a must-have for anyone seriously interested in the arts of cookery and domestic economy, but it’s also a social document in the sense that it attests to and vividly describes a way of life that is now all but extinct, a time when the upper classes had legions of servants at their beck and call, waiting upon their every need (Downton Abbey fans take note!). Out of this age of grandeur and ostentatious displays of wealth Mrs. Beeton’s BOOK OF HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT was born, a volume as rich and grandiose as the Victorian era itself.
To give you a better idea of all the mouth-watering recipes and other 19th-century know-how waiting for you in Mrs. Beeton’s BOOK OF HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT, I have prepared some chapter summaries below detailing the different chapters and the recipes/receipts they contain (these summaries are of my own creation and not found in the book). You will also find a generous sampling of the book’s illustrations, including the color plates. I hope you will take a few moments to have a look.
