Francatelli, C E: A Plain Cookery Book for the Working Classes, v.1, 23 Dec 2007

A little oddity from 1862. Queen Victoria's chef teaches the working classes how to cook: condescending and sympathetic at the same time.

NB the liquid measures are in imperial pints. These are 20 fluid ounces, whereas the American pint is 16 fluid ounces. (The imperial pint dates from 1824.)

Some of the recipes look quite feasible, though others seem stodgy. There are instructions fro brewing beer.

Some of the recipes are now impossible to make. In the UK one cannot buy calves' heads owing to the BSE risk. And the instructions for curing one's own bacon are problematic because one cannot buy saltpetre because it is also an ingredient for some explosives.

There's a TOC, some pictures and a clickable index.
