Eliza Acton's Modern Cookery for Private Families is the classic Victorian cookery book. It is also the first truly modern cookery book that includes a separate listing of recipes and cooking times. This kindle edition based on the 1865 edition of the book includes:And Introduction and a biography of Eliza Acton by Dyfed Lloyd EvansMissing recipes from the first edition re-includedRecipes from the American Edition included as a separate chapterModern redactions of a selection of the recipesGlossary of termsFull illustrations from the original 1865 bookAll footnotesModern cookery for private families was the first truly modern cookery book and established the template for all the cookery books that followed. This makes this cookery book much more accessible than that of many of her contemporaries. The truth is that Eliza Acton's recipes just work. She is also an author beloved by modern chefs and cooks and many of her recipes have been copied and adapted. Her recipes also formed the base for Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management (many were copied without acknowledgement). This new kindle edition contains all the text of the 1865 edition, with any missing recipes added back from the 1845 edition. Also, the additional text added to the 1845 American edition of the book have been added as a separate chapter. There are modern redactions of a number of Eliza Acton's classic recipes, a new introduction and biography of Eliza Acton and a glossary of terms (particularly of the fruit varieties referred to in the book). The book is fully linked for easy navigation and the original table of contents has been included, with links. This book has been faithfully reproduced from the original and has been hand-edited throughout.
