Her love of the infinite variety of English cooking and her knowledge of British culture and history show why our food should never be considered dull or limited. There are unusual dishes such as the Cornish Onion and Apple Pie, and even recipes for fungi, from common field mushrooms to puffballs. She describes some delicious puddings, cakes and breads, including an exotic violet flower ice cream, an eighteenth century coconut bread and Yorkshire teacakes. The finely-executed line drawings that accompany many of the recipes are more than just beautiful; they inform the cook about different varieties and techniques of food-handling. FOOD IN ENGLAND, which had such a deep influence on many contemporary cooks and food writers, will undoubtedly attract a new generation of admirers.Hide synopsis

I don't think I'll be cooking any of these recipes -- they require cuts of meat right off the farm, a farm which should be in Britain. Since I am no longer in Britain, I no longer have access to that quality of meat. Nevertheless, the book is wonderful, a look into a natural way of life that is becoming increasingly difficult to find. It's a great tool for those of us who write historical fiction. And it's a fun read.
