Description
A Shilling Cookery for the People ... Eightieth th Author: Soyer, Alexis / George Routledge & Co.: London, 1855 Language: English Source/Shelfmark: 7954.a.20, 166-167 Here Soyer describes a 'simplified way of making coffee'. The reader is encouraged to keep the used coffee grounds, and to re-use them the following day. Soyer writes of a tea party he had attended in St Giles, one of London's poorest districts, at which he had offered his hosts a coffee-making lesson. The occasion is described in romantic terms: Soyer is 'received like a princess in a fairy land' into a room ornamented with wall flowers and 'pyramids of muffins and crumpets'. Image taken from A Shilling Cookery for the People Eightieth thousand. Originally published/produced in George Routledge & Co.: London, 1855.
