Isabella Beeton Book and Novel

Isabella Beeton - Author


Isabella Mary Beeton was born in London is 1836, where she grew up in a household of 21 children. It took Isabella four years to compile her masterwork, publishing MRS BEETON'S BOOK OF HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT in 1861. It contains an enormous amount of information to help people live, in Isabella Beeton's own words, 'economically, tastefully and well'. Her style, imparting information as clearly and simply as possible, was hugely influential. The book sold 60,000 copies in its first year, but Isabella Beeton died four years later, in 1865, aged just 28. The enduring popularity of MRS BEETON'S BOOK OF HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT is testament to the quality of her advice. Gerard Baker is a chef, food writer, broadcaster and historian.

He has been nominated for Pick of the Year on BBC Radio 4 's FOOD PROGRAMME and he has made numerous television appearances; most notably on the judging panel on Rosemary Schrager's SCHOOL FOR COOK and as the food historian to the Hairy Bikers on their MUMS KNOW BEST BBC tour.
