Additional Details

Description: The Victorians were famous for good home-cooking, and this delightful book illustrates why with a collection of traditional mouthwatering recipes. Each page features full-color illustrations and beautiful photographs, guaranteed to bring this fascinating period to life and bring the taste of the great Victorian era to your kitchen and dining table. 

In the search to find Victorian recipes for today's cooks, the author has looked further than the shores of Victorian England. During his research he has come across many delicious "foreign" recipes, particularly from continental Victorian Europe and from the states of Victorian America. We learn how to prepare, for example, Salade de Pissenlits and Boston Baked Beans in the section devoted to Salads, Vegetables and Accompaniments, and The King of Oude's Omelet and Maccaroni a la Reine in the section devoted to Eggs and Pasta. 

The Great Victorian Cookbook has been divided into eleven sections, including Poultry and Feathered Game, Meat and Furred Game, Sandwiches and Savories, Seafood and River Fish, Cakes, Pastries and Desserts and Preserves and Pickles. Each section is packed with a variety of recipes to delight your tastebuds, along with interesting tips and snippets of information from cooks and cookbooks of the time.
