Abstract:

At last, more than a century after it was first published, a new edition of Mrs A. R. Barnes' classic 1890 cookery book. This historic and entertaining household guide is illustrated with charming and evocative black-and-white Victorian advertisements and offers over 500 recipes for southern African delicacies, including sticky melon and ginger preserve, Malay-inspired aromatic pickled fish, and spicy soetkoek biscuits. Mrs Barnes also provided her readers with useful instructions on how to make a traditional African polished cow-dung floor, how to treat snake bites, and the best method for discouraging mosquitos. A fascinating handbook, illustrating the adaptability and inventiveness of British settlers in the remote, unforgiving environment of Victorian Africa.
