Georgiana 'Browning' Hill was the author of a number of cookery books in the late 1800s, which include The Gourmet's Guide to Rabbit Cooking and A Year of Victorian Puddings. Her early cookbooks offered simple food for the middle classes and sold in very large numbers at six pence each. She enjoyed success with her later titles which became more adventurous, with recipes from Spain and France, and were aimed at more serious gourmets. The dates of her birth and death are unknown.
