Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management, a Victorian classic is a compendium of practical household advice. It offers advice on fashion, child-care, animal husbandry, poisons, seasonal produce, and the management of servants. Beeton's book explores the foods of Europe and contains hundreds of recipes. The preface sets out the book's goal of providing "men" with such well-cooked food at home that it may compete with what they could eat "at their clubs, well-ordered taverns, and dining-houses".
