Description: In this sumptuous cookbook, Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall takes us on a nostalgic culinary pilgrimage, rediscovering classic recipes from the Edwardian kitchen. With delicious dishes, adapted with today’s kitchen in mind and delightfully informed by reminiscences from Jane’s childhood, this is much more than a cookbook – it offers a slice of gastronomic history, reviving the flavours from the great English country houses.

We had our breakfasts – whatever happens in a house – robbery or murder, it doesn’t matter, you must have your breakfast.
–THE MOONSTONE BY WILKIE COLLINS

Jam Roly-Poly and all!

This is quite a step up from your average cookbook, J F-W has some lovely stories to tell, nostalgic asides, and some great quotes from literature. The downside – no piccies.

A definite keeper.
