a project ....of sorts
A few days ago I embarked on a project to read all of Mrs. Isabella Beeton's Book of Household Management. I did skip the long reference to "putrid and spoilt meat" but I plan to read most of this tome. I am in Soups at present, but only 9% through the entire book on my Kindle.
Much of the book I find enlightening and very interesting; I read the section on paying and receiving calls with much interest. The section on the duties of the household servants I could easily identify with: too much to do and not enough time! Sounds like my job!! LOL!
The Apple Soup recipe I found recently on a YouTube video about Mrs. Beeton with Sophie Dahl. It didn't look very appetizing on video and it doesn't sound all that appetizing in the book. But some of the other soups do sound like something I might want to try.
Has anyone else read all of Mrs. Beeton? I can tell this will take me some time to complete. If I try some of the recipes I post them here.
