Savory suppers & fashionable feasts : dining in Victorian America by Susan Williams( Book )

5 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Savory Suppers and Fashionable Feasts offers a delightfully flavorful tour of dining in America during the second half of the nineteenth century. Susan Williams investigates the manners and morals of that era by looking at its eating customs and cooking methods. As she reveals, genteel dining became an increasingly important means of achieving social stability during a period when Americans were facing significant changes on a variety of fronts - social, cultural, intellectual, technological, and demographic." "Focusing on the rapidly expanding middle class, Williams not only examines mealtime rituals, but she looks at the material culture of Victorian dining: the furniture, the furnishings, and the growing array of accouterments - from asparagus tongs to sardine servers and lace doilies - that supported genteel expectations for tableside behavior. She also explores changing ideas about meals - how they fit into the daily schedule and what kinds of food and drink came to characterize specific meals and menus. Complementing Williams's analysis and descriptions is a lavish array of illustrations, as well as a rich sampling of recipes from the diaries and cookbooks of the era. The result is at once an informative look at life in Victorian America and a sumptuous celebration of a key moment in the country's culinary experience."--Jacket

A Guide to the study of a Victorian household by Margaret Woodbury Strong Museum( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to introduce secondary school students to a variety of historical resources on local, family, and 19th century cultural history, the primary materials presented in this guide provide insight into the lives of one family, the D. H. Osbornes, who lived in Victor, New York, from the 1850's through the first half of this century. Based on a major exhibition and the collections of the Strong Museum (Rochester, New York), this resource book contains photographs of interior and exterior architecture of the day, family photographs, maps, and family papers. Each of the primary materials is accompanied by a "to the teacher" section as well as questions to guide the student's study. This booklet not only helps sharpen the student's skills in interpreting primary materials but also provides a glimpse of Victorian life in an upper middle-class household. The final section of the workbook, "Your House as History," applies the same method of inquiry to 20th century residences. This is intended as a summary exercise, with students documenting a modern house in order to contrast 19th and 20th century life styles. (Author/LH)
