Books for Cooks

Beeton's Book of Household Management

Are you searching for new recipes? Try Books for Cooks! Book images, information, history and, of course, recipes, from the Medieval food until the 1900s food.

This unique collection of cookery books will transport you back in time. It will take you to medieval banqueting tables laden with peacocks and pastry ships; to the medicine cabinets of noblewomen; and to royal picnics in the jungle. It will show you how the poor were encouraged to re-use coffee grounds in Victorian London, and how a rationed population attempted to stay healthy during World War 2. You will find recipes for puddings and roasts, for beauty treatments and bed bug repellents, for pies made with live birds and frogs, and for dishes spiced with ingredients as valuable as jewels.

    My favourite part in cookbooks are the images: pictures or drawing. I would like that someone create a “likable” book or with pages that could be eat. 🙂
