Julienne Gehrer – author, journalist and food historian – presents a delicious dive into Martha Lloyd’s Household book – a precious object in the Museum’s collection.

Recently published in facsimile for the first time, Martha’s handwritten book of ‘receipts’ reveals some of the foods that Jane Austen and her family would have eaten, drunk and used here at Chawton Cottage. Julienne will tease out family, culinary and literary connections, giving a fascinating perspective on the time and manner in which both Jane and Martha lived, thanks to this extraordinary artefact.
