Dinner for Dickens publishes a transcript of the 1852 new edition' of the book along with additional recipes added to the 1854 edition. More an efficient household manager than a domestic goddess, Rossi-Wilcox looks at the life of Catherine Dickens, her household and culinary skills, the writing of What Shall We Have for Dinner?' under the rather grand pseudonym of Lady Maria Clutterbuck, set within the context of Victorian cookery and entertaining.
