Description: Readable, entertaining, Victorian Secrets is a rich collection of contemporary recipes as well as a colorful narrative journey back to the gas-lit-days of yesteryear, to the era of wealthy railroad baron Henry Bradley Plant, his palatial Tampa Bay Hotel, and his lively role in the conflict that forever changed the face of America, the Spanish-American War.
Accompanied by charming pen-and-ink illustrations, the palate-pleasing recipes are offered by some of the South's most accomplished hostesses. Recipes for regional specialties reflect traditional grace and hospitality; dishes from imported cuisines point to Tampa's cultural sophistication.
All recipes have been tested to make certain the reader will be triumphant on the first try.
Condition: Good condition. One faint dirt spot on the back cover.
