Synopsis : While husband Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species changed the way we viewed evolution, there was another book, written by a different Darwin, that shed light on Victorian style, taste, and family life. Unknown to the general public until now, Mrs. Charles Darwin compiled a cookery notebook filled with culinary instruction and personal anecdotes about everyday life in the Darwin household. Featuring facsimile representations of Emma's original recipes, each one tested by authors Dusha Bateson and Weslie Janeway, Mrs. Charles Darwin's Recipe Book revived and illustrated offers a rare glimpse behind the kitchen and dining-room doors of one of the Victorian era's most eminent families. Contents: Preface; Foreword; Introduction; Cheese & Eggs; Fish; Meat; Vegetables, Soups, and Salad Dressings; Puddings and Sweet Things; Preserves and Pantry; And Something Different; References; Bibliography; Index; Appendices; Credits and Acknowledgements.
A propos de l'auteur: Dusha Bateson studied history at England's Cambridge University. In 1988, her husband, the biologist Sir Patrick Bateson, became Provost of King's College where the Batesons entertained a variety of guests, from Queen Elizabeth II to the Dalai Lama. The Batesons live in East Suffolk, England. Weslie Janeway studied history and politics at Barnard College and Brown University. She lives with her husband and son variously between Cambridge, England, New York City, and the coast of Maine.
