This is the type of cookbook that you curl up with and read like you would a good novel. Nearly all the recipes have long introductions that tell a bit about its place in history, including the year it is thought to have originated.To my countrymen, do not be put off by the metric measurements--just buy a scale and be done with it (a whole world of cookbooks await you)! The shortbread and coconut gingerbread recipes alone are worth the investment of this book and the scale!
Loved watching Mary-Anne on GBBO and this book absolutely met - and exceeded - my expectations. Great recipes, anecdotes and packed with history, I absolutely loved it and read it cover-to-cover in a manner of days. I am already looking forward to a volume 2!
A lovely cookbook/history of English baking. Would recommend for any baker.
