Mrs Beeton was and is excellent. An alternative was a sort of encyclopedia, which would probably also land on second hand book stalls, Ross Murray's 'The Modern Householder: A Manual of Domestic Economy in all its branches'. Published in the 1870's and later. Cassell's Household Guide was another popular encyclopedia-like volume.
