    Week 5 (Feb. 1-7): In the Kitchen




    The Book of Household Management by Mrs. Beeton

    Victorian Bakers

    English Heritage

    YouTube: The Real Mrs Crocombe- Parts One to Five

    Victorian Recipes

    So many memories revolve around meals and cooking together.
    Do you have an ancestor who was a good cook (or maybe a notoriously bad cook!)
    What about a favourite recipe -- where did it come from or who always cooked it?
    If that doesn't spring any ideas, what about ancestors named Kitchen or Cook(e)?

    I haven't quite finished my own article yet - I have decided to write about my bakers and confectioners.

      That will be interesting Caroline. This week I struggled so this post is very short and sad, but then I spent an hour or two checking background information.

        That's really sad. When my daughter was in the orphanage in India, she used to "help" the nuns and she upset a pan of boiling water over her hand and you can still see the scarring across the back of her knuckles. She will have been a bit younger than Dennis, but a whole lot luckier!

        I had fun exploring about Victorian bakeries and confectioners while writing it, but that research doesn't really appear in my article!

          Scalds can leave really bad scars, I think like sunburn people don't realise just how bad they can be.

            In the kitchen - sort of!! I may well go back an put more in. I'm waiting for a certificate as we have never really tracked down who Edmund Mason was and how he ended up in Farnham marrying Jessamine.

              i did consider writing about my kitchen fire 10years ago, but i dont want it all about me, so i linked it to the "cook family" in my tree. https://purplerosefamilytree.blogspo...john-cook.html
