Simultaneously an investigation into the history of cookery in America, an exploration of Victorian cooking methods and fads, and a biography of Fannie Farmer, America's first hugely successful cooking authority - although she was admittedly a better marketer than a chef. Author Christopher Kimball sets out to recreate a 12-course Victoria meal in his renovated Victorian home in Boston: from the ingredients to the tools, he does it all as authentically as possible. Fascinating and often hilarious, he also shares the (modified) recipes he used. NOT recommended reading for vegitarians ...
