Mrs Beeton's Classic Meat Dishesby Isabella Beeton
Mrs. Beeton was an expert at cooking suppers that were hearty, warming, and wholesome. From a roast fore rib of beef, steak and kidney pudding, and braised mutton, her recipes were big on flavor: tender, succulent, and delicious dishes with the best quality cuts of meat. Here is traditional British cooking at its best, with the most economical and practical methods to create those classic suppers that continue to stand the test of time. All of the recipes have been drawn from Mrs Beeton's original Book of Household Management and have been updated for the 21st-century kitchen. Combined with sound, modern advice on how to source good food, plus detailed information on ingredients and equipment, and illustrations of all the techniques required, this is the go-to mini-book for any aspiring or experienced home cook.
