SYNOPSIS: If you want a book with authentic Victorian recipes, this isn't it.  Although there are some recipes in this book, it is a behind the scenes look at how the kitchen functioned and what it needed to function.  It is a companion to a BBC production of the same name. This book will give you an overview of the day-to-day schedule, a list of servants working in the kitchen and their salaries, as well as where the cooks purchased or obtained the food and the main staples of a traditional English breakfast. This book is full of illustrations, including actual photographs from the Victorian era.  A valuable resource for anyone wanting to add authentic culinary detail to their story.
