Old school wise words

"I have always thought that there is no more fruitful source of family discontent than badly-cooked meals and untidy ways. Men are now so well served out of doors - at clubs, hotels and restaurants - that, to compete with the attractions of these places, a mistress must be thoroughly acquainted with the theory and practice of cookery, as well as all the other arts of making and keeping a comfortable home." 
Isabella Beeton - The Book of Household Management
