Mrs Bridges’ Story
Mrs Bridges… Cook… or Kate to a very select few, began her life ‘in service’ as an under cook to ‘respectable’ families in the countryside of Victorian England. From those early days, she began collecting recipes. Her repertoire spanned from simple country cooking, to dishes in the fine French fashion. Later. Kate Bridges became Cook to one of the leading Edwardian families Lady and Richard Bellamy. Mrs Bridges cooked for some of the leading figures in the capital including the Monarch King Edward.
Mrs Bridges collected her receipts for dishes which would grace regal banquets. Kate was inspired by the works of Mrs Beeton and encouraged by her employer Lady Marjorie. So she published her receipts into a book called “Practical Household Cookery” in 1905.
