The British Housewife: Cookery Books, Cooking and Society in 18th-Century Britain by Gilly Lehmann 566pp, Prospect .

The British Housewife: Cookery Books, Cooking and Society in 18th-Century Britain by Gilly Lehmann 566pp, Prospect Books, £40. Fine dining was a competitive sport in Georgian England, at least among those who could afford i. In the process she discovers a hundred little human dramas, fraught with greed and envy. Jane Austen, for instance, writes with contrived lightness to her sister Cassandra, joking about the provincial earliness of the dinner hour at Steventon.

The British Housewife. This is the first full-scale study of the world of eighteenth-century British cookery books, their authors, their readers and their recipes. For many decades, we have treated them as collectables – often fetching thousands at auction and in rare-book catalogues – or as quaint survivors, while ignoring their true history or what they have to tell us about the Georgians at table.

This is the fourth of six parts of a facsimile reprint of a compendium of cookery, gardening, animal husbandry and general household medicine which was published in two volumes in about 1760, having first been offered to the public in 41 weekly parts in 1756.
