Synopsis

Everlasting Syllabub and the Art of Carving by Hannah Glasse, Agnes Jekyll

Writing for domestic servants in a conversational, accessible way, eighteenth-century housewife Hannah Glasse disapproved of French terminology and fussiness, instead favouring simple dishes that are still cooked today - a preference that has earned her the reputation of 'the first Domestic Goddess'. With recipes for rice pudding, beef rump, barbecued pork, trifle and even the first recipe in Britain for 'Curry the Indian way', as well as tips for choosing your ingredients and cures for the bite of a mad dog, this is an elegant and economical collection of recipes and housekeeping tips to save any homemaker 'a great deal of trouble'.

About the Author

Hannah Glasse (1708-1780) is the author of The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy, first published in 1747. A bestselling cookbook for over a hundred years, the book gave plain and easy instructions for low-cost fine dining and revolutionised the meals of the middle classes. Considered the 'mother of the dinner party' by Clarissa Dickson-Wright and much admired since the time of its writing, Glasses's trademark dishes include curry and roast hare.
