“Now this classic of domestic literature appears as a facsimile of the first edition but specially enlarged to enable the wealth of recipes and its unique information on housecraft to be easily read and constantly used.
There are more than 1,350 timeless recipes which offer ideas for dishes as appropriate now as when they were first published over 120 years ago.  Today’s cook can choose from an extensive variety ranging from such traditions of English cookery as Steak and Kidney Pie to exotic cuisines like the Chicken Marengo originally prepared for the First Consul.  The comments, anecdotes and general information which embellish the recipes make highly entertaining reading.  Also, Mrs Beeton’s advice on domestic economy is remarkably relevant today, and enlivening the commonsense and traditional remedies are such delightful Victorian curiosities as how to lift scorch marks with ‘dried fowls’ dung.”
