A Year in the Victorian Kitchen (Hardback)

Unavailable. Replaced by new version by new supplier.


Four seasons in the Victorian kitchen with Amelia Horne and the famous cookbooks of her great-great grandmother. Beautifully photographed, this is a year in an era when everything was locally-sourced, organic, freshly prepared and waste-free...This celebration of the traditional English kitchen and its fare is a blend of the old and the new. Inspired by her great-great grandmother's collection of nineteenth-century cookbooks, Amelia Horne here shows how we can fall back in love with the locally sourced, organic foods of our ancestors. As well as modern, fully-usable takes on the recipes themselves - with beautiful original photography of the dishes and their preparation - the book also looks at the cuisine offered in Victorian stately homes, the regional provenance of various foods, table decorations, and handy hints for growing your own produce. This is a book where nostalgia meets the urgent contemporary need for a thoughtful, local and low-waste approach to feeding the family.
