1875 Antique Victorian Housewife Cookbook Baking Brewing Game Cookery Recipes:


Original 1875 Edition of “Cookery and Domestic Economy for Young Housewives” by H.S.C. :: Published by William and Robert Chambers: London :: Measures 5 x 6 3/4" :: Complete with 140 Pages.

VERY GOOD CONDITION: A tightly bound volume, solid hinges, inscription in front, generally clean pages, covers in good shape, complete with all pages; overall a very good condition example of this vintage cookery book.

Here is an antique 19th Century Victorian Guide designed and written entirely with a view to practical utility, and for the information of those young Housewives in the middle ranks of society, who have not had the benefit of regular instructions in the affairs of the kitchen and want a simple and economical guide to Cookery.

In the preface, the author writes:

“Care has been taken to exclude costly dishes, and the use of expensive, or not easily to be procured materials, in which respect the book differs considerably from most of the works on cookery with which I am acquainted. I can safely say that every receipt I offer—every advice—every little piece of information—is the result of personal experience.

The book is a Manual of Plain directions to be used in the kitchens of the middle or less affluent classes; the endeavor being to show how tasteful and nutritious dishes may be prepared as little expense in order to render home happy and attractive. The circumstance of having lived a number of years in Scotland, has enabled me to give a variety of receipts for Scotch Dishes, the accuracy of which may be relied on.”

The book contains hundreds of vintage recipes reminiscent of the time from Roast Hare, Boiling Whole Rabbits, Stewing Pigeons, Ox-Tail Soup, Mock Turtle Soup, Sheep’s Haggis, Curried Oysters, Rabbit Pie, Giblet Pie, Apple Pie, White Wine Whey, Baking Bread, Brewing Beer, Pickling, Curing Meat, and much more.
