Synopsis : More than a cookbook, the Mrs. Charles Darwin's Recipe Book delineates a lifestyle at the top of English society and intelligentsia at the time. This treasure trove that includes unlikely dishes such as Turnips Cresselly and Penally Pudding contains, even, another cook evident in the work: The recipe for boiling rice is in Charles Darwin's own hand. The image of Darwin standing over a pot of boiling water with his pocket watch in hand, is one to savor, along with every other vestige of a lost kitchen and lifestyle come back to life here.

And another cook is evident in the work: the recipe for boiling rice is in Charles Darwin's own hand; the image of Darwin standing over a pot of boiling water, pocket watch in hand, is one to savor."A brilliantly presented compendium of recipes, culinary instructions and personal anecdotes.
