About this deal

The early editions included an obituary notice for Beeton, but the publishers insisted it be removed "allowing readers to imagine – perhaps even as late as 1915 – that some mob-capped matriarch was out there still keeping an eye on them". Chapters 40 to 50 (some 200 pages) give instructions for dairy products, vegetarian and invalid (sick person) cookery, making bread, biscuits and cakes, and beverages. With over 2,000 practical Recipes and Sections on Labour-Saving, Carving and Trussing, Household Work, The Art of 'Using-Up', Servants' Duties, Laundry Work [and many other topics].

Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management; Comprising information for the Mistress, Housekeeper, Cook, Kitchen Maid, Butler etc.

Beeton has been described as "the grandmother of modern domestic goddesses", like Nigella Lawson and Delia Smith, who saw, as Beeton did, the need to provide reassuring advice on culinary matters for the British middle classes. Cookery is introduced with words about "the progress of mankind from barbarism to civilization", with a mention of man "in his primitive state, [living] upon roots and the fruits of the earth", rising to become in turn "a hunter and a fisher"; then a "herdsman" and finally "the comfortable condition of a farmer. The present work, sometimes referred to as Mrs Beeton's Shilling Cookery Book, appeared in several editions into the 1880s.
