"Now, centuries later, Austen lovers can cook the same recipes Jane enjoyed while writing her incredible works." * Southern Living *

"Austen lovers can read and cook from the same recipes Jane once enjoyed. . . . The new edition contains a full facsimile original manuscript, with a deep-brown sheep parchment cover and yellowing pages covered in Martha Lloyd's loopy handwriting, as well as Gehrer's painstaking transcription of the entire contents." * Gastro Obscura *
"This is a glorious book-a work of art to read and read again." * Jane Austen's Regency World *
"Martha Lloyd's Household Book is one of the few items we have from Jane Austen's closest friend... Included as a natural preface... is an extensive biography of Martha Lloyd." * LitHub *
"It's perhaps surprising that no one has published a scholarly version of this little book before. But we may be glad it waited for the loving eye of Ms. Gehrer, because she has done it perfectly, and produced both a new resource for those who want to know everything about Jane Austen's life and times, and a very practical introduction to hands-on Georgian cookery." * Digestible Bits & Bites, Culinary Historians of Canada *
"Julienne Gehrer's comprehensive discussion of Martha Lloyd's friendship with Jane Austen, her relationship with the Austen family, and her late-life marriage to Sir Francis Austen, Jane's brother, had me mesmerized." * Jane Austen's World *
