From the collection of Sophie Coe.
Mrs. Marshall enjoyed the status of a female culinary celebrity in late 19th century England, where she ran a cooking school, a domestic staff agency, and a cooking and household equipment sales business. She began publishing the magazine The Table in 1886, and she gave cooking demonstrations to large audiences all over Great Britain. Her book of ices is considered the finest of her four cookery books. Known as the Queen of Ices, she patented an ice cream freezer and is credited with the first mention of the ice cream cone in 1888, scooping (pun intended) the American claim to its invention in 1904.
