The Mrs Bridges Story
Mrs Bridges… Cook… or Kate began her life as a 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. Kate Bridges earned the honorary title of ‘Mrs’ Bridges when she became Cook to one of London’s socialites, Lady and Richard Bellamy. During her time there, Mrs Bridges devised elaborate menus and cooked for some of the leading figures in the capital including King Edward.
Mrs Bridges receipts would grace regal banquets – as well as ‘below the stairs’ suppers. Later, she drew her receipts into a book called “Practical Household Cookery” which was published in 1905.
Mrs Bridges was immortalized in the long running 1970’s series ‘Upstairs Downstairs’ where, along with the Butler Mr Hudson, she reigned ‘downstairs.’
Although few copies of her original book “Practical Household Cookery” survive. Today the spirit of Mrs Bridges lives on in the range of fine food gifts.
