HOW TO COOK THE VICTORIAN WAY WITH MRS CROCOMBE

HOW TO COOK THE VICTORIAN WAY WITH MRS CROCOMBE

“An absolute delight from cover to cover. Having slogged through all 1000+ pages of Mrs Beeton in a state of near-constant bewilderment, I deeply appreciated the notes and modernization on each page of Mrs Crocombe. Everyone who is interested in Victorian cookery, YouTube fan or not, should start here.” 

Henry

“Wonderful book. Catches you in a world of Victorian England with some of the recipes, and at the end of the book is a section of the recipes in her original writing together with the spelling errors and corrections which are charming. Don’t think I will be making the brain cakes, but wonderful historical references and pictures of all the people mentioned in the various videos that people will have seen.”
