I have started a small scale publishing company www.cookeryclassics.com in order to bring long neglected cookery books back to life as updated editions for iPad.

These are the sort of books that Beryl Patmore from Downton Abbey would have had on her kitchen bookshelf and I would really appreciate your opinion on the three books that we have completed so far. Samples are available to download at iBooks as follows:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/mrs.-wilsons-cook-book/id597930000?ls=1
https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/dictionary-of-food/id597926404?ls=1
https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/meat-poultry-fish-shellfish/id597922378?ls=1

I have also started the Cookery Heritage blog to which I hope your readers will contribute. www.cookeryheritage.com

Neat site! I happen to have a copy of Mrs Beeton's All About Cookery and I love it. Made Plum Pudding from it one Christmas and it came out great.

Another good, and more well-known "old-fashioned" cookbook is The Settlement Cookbook
