A charming evocation of Victorian Kitchen life, with details of the ingredients – fresh and packaged – the menus, equipment and the kitchen regulars, from cook to passing tradesmen. With wonderful illustrations of Victorian food packaging and advertising, this is a great nostalgic look at life below stairs in the age of Victoria. From the patent marmalade machine to the early anti-bacterial preparations.
