really liked it

Must admit I love this. Two passions (cooking and Austen) combined, with illustrations!! Full of fun tidbits about Regency social and domestic history—in other words, when, what, and how they ate. The recipes (or “receipts”) are mostly Austen family recipes from Martha Lloyd’s cookbook; some feature in Jane’s novels (i.e. white soup, strawberry crème pudding, and syllabub). Sheer delight for social historians or Austen lovers who love to cook.
