Gervase Markham's The English Housewife was the first important mass-market cookbook and housekeeping guide in the English language. Bridging the manuscript and print eras, Markham's work had a much larger reach than previous works on the home. Julia Skinner takes Markham's work across the centuries into current new media, translating Markham's recipes and ideas into a blog and back into a book again. Even if you don't know a conserve from a wet sucket, Modernizing Markham is a fun and eye-opening look into English kitchens of old.
