Delightful ladies cooking their way across Britain
The first book of these irrepressible two ladies is a gem. From a seaside search for wild crabs and mussels to a recipe for "real" Scotch eggs, you'll enjoy every page. Humor, eccentric escapades, and practical advice abound, as you see in Clarissa's description of her "Bubble and Squeak" recipe: "I once lived with a man who could be stopped in midsentence of even the most savage argument if I started making this dish. You may imagine I am something of an expert at it. There is no substitute for lard or beef drippings -- if you object, eat something else." Of her search for the origin of the recipe for "Eggs Drumkilbo," Jennifer wrote: "Lady Elphinstone told me that her uncle's cook was the first perpetrator of this dish, and it was served at Buckingham Palace as part of the wedding breakfast for Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips. Isn't that a fine detective story?" Whether you prepare every single recipe or just read and enjoy, this book is a delight.
