While her husband's book On the Origin of Species changed the way we viewed the rise of life on earth, Emma Wedgwood Darwin herself gave us a book that now sheds light on Victorian style, taste, and family life. Her cookery notebook is filled with culinary instruction for such unlikely dishes as Turnips Cresselly and Penally Pudding—presented here with facsimiles of Emma's original handwriting—as well as personal anecdotes about everyday life in the Darwin household, delineating a lifestyle at the top of English society and intelligentsia. And another cook is evident in the work: the recipe for boiling rice is in Charles Darwin's own hand; the image of Darwin standing over a pot of boiling water, pocket watch in hand, is one to savor.

"A brilliantly presented compendium of recipes, culinary instructions and personal anecdotes.... Culinary enthusiasts Dusha Bateson and Weslie Janeway have teamed up to recreate and test every one of the 55 recipes that Emma Darwin had recorded for her own use and for her posterity ... ranging from Fish Croquettes, Celery Sauce, Potato Rissoles, and Stewed Mushrooms to Vegetable Soup, Nesselrode Pudding, Quince Jelly, and Scotch Cake. The beautifully rendered drawings of plants and the full color photography of finished dishes, as well as the occasional reproductions of Mrs. Darwin's handwritten entries, makes [this book] ... welcome and unique."—Midwest Book Review
