Happy Birthday Mrs. Beeton!

So I am sure many of you dont know this but today is Mrs. Isabella Beeton's 176th birthday! Mrs. Beeton wrote a very famous book in Victorian London during the 1860s which soon became the stable book of every Victorian household. Think, Betty Crocker Cookbook of today. It was called Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management. And even today is a very popular book.

In celebration of Mrs. Beeton's birthday I watched a wonderful and fun documentary about her life which you can find on youtube.

Anyone interested in Victorian London, and cooking would really enjoy this documentary as I did. It's only a crying shame that Mrs. Beeton didnt live past the age of 28. Here is also a link to her website. Which holds a world of information from her book for those of you dont own it.
