Evolutionary cooking by Mrs C.Darwin

evolutionary cooking
A cookbook based on notes by Charles Darwin's wife is to be published. Mrs Charles Darwin's Recipe Book features more than 40 dishes from her personal cookery notebook, which is housed in Cambridge University Library. Turnip cresselly, broiled mushrooms, cheese straws and baked apple pudding all feature in the Victorian notes.

"Ποταμοῖς τοῖς αὐτοῖς ἐμβαίνομέν τε καὶ οὐκ ἐμβαίνομεν, εἶμέν τε καὶ οὐκ εἶμεν."

"We both step and do not step in the same rivers. We are and are not."
Heraclitus the Riddler
