Very true, Ginger - in the mind's eye she's a rather stout Victorian matriarch, but she died at twenty-eight; however, as has been pointed out many times, most of the content was plagiarised from other books and some of the recipes are frankly odd (I'd hate to see pasta that's been boiled for 1 hr 45 mins!). Her strength was that she put it all together in a practical and easily comprehended form (she popularised the idea of giving a list of ingredients needed at the start of a recipe, for instance).
