Item Description...
"This was the last of Eliza Acton's books, published two years before her death in 1859. It is not only a collection of bread recipes of all sorts, from household bread to Sally Lunns, but also a polemic on healthy eating which is still relevant 150 years later. Although she was a firm believer in home baking, she also advocated machine dough - mixing in commercial bakeries - and compared the new French machine methods with the filthy conditions and hard lives of the English bakers of the time. There are chapters on flours, yeasts, ovens and breadbaking for beginners. Although this book created a sensation when it first came out in 1857, it has never been reprinted and is now an extremely rare book."

More About Eliza Acton & Elizabeth Ray

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Eliza Acton was an English poet and cook born in Sussex in 1799. Her first verse was published in 1826, and she continued to publish single, longer poems, but it was her "Modern Cookery" that garnered her widest acclaim. It was an immensely influential book, extravagantly praised, that served as an early model for contemporary writing about cookery, and it remained in print until 1914.

Sarah Josepha Hale was the editor of "Godey's Lady's Book", the most influential American magazine published in the 19th century, for 40 years. With this role, Hale became the final and definitive resource on national taste for decades, and she wrote over 50 books. Among her numerous significant contributions to American culture, Hale is credited with making Thanksgiving a national holiday, helping to found Vassar College, penning "Mary Had a Little Lamb," and encouraging the higher education of women. She died in 1879 at the age of 90.

Eliza Acton was born in 1799 and died in 1859.
