I am always intrigued by the debris of history rather than the well worn stories of historical giants and this book suits my fancy in every way. Part epicurean record and part ghost of dinners past this records the everyday aspect (aspic?) of the strange world of Victorian eating and drinking habits. While trying to preserve the factual twelve course dinner and serve it to modern audiences, Chris Kimball overcomes a battle with a wood burning stove, forgetting that a calve's head needs to be de-brained (I knew that!) and multiple fancy jellies. Whew!
