Dear Members and Friends,
Don't forget to book for the original and fascinating talk by Dr Helen
Szamuely on 'The Russian Mrs Beeton – Elena Molokhovets and her cookbook
"A Gift for Young Housewives"', first published in 1861 but banned under
the Soviet regime. Dr Helen Szamuely will offer an entertaining insight
into this fascinating work, which was 'a bible for Russian home-makers' of
its era and is an important socio-historical document for us today.
This talk has been arranged by special request of one of our members. Do
come and support us!
