How to Cook the Victorian Way with Mrs Crocombe

How to Cook the Victorian Way is the definitive guide to the life, times and tastes of a Victorian cook. Avis Crocombe really did exist – she was head cook at Audley End House from about 1878 to 1884. Her handwritten cookery book was passed down through her family for generations and rediscovered by a distant relative in 2009. It’s a remarkable read, and her recipes give us a wonderful window into a world of flavour from 140 years ago. Beautifully designed by Thextension, this book features recipes along with a transcription of Avis’s original manuscript, plus fascinating insights into daily life at Audley End.
