About This Item

In good condition - has markings from use - due to differing weights in books, postage maybe adjusted at checkout.

In this volume, the first in an original study of English cooking, Elizabeth David presents English recipes which are notable for their employment of spices, salt and aromatics. As usual, she seasons instruction with information, explaining the origins and uses of such ingredients as nutmeg, cardamon and juniper. Mrs David stresses the influence of centuries of oriental trade on the English kitchen, where spices and Indian curry, kebabs and yoghurt are now perfectly at home, along with immigrant dishes such as risotto, paella and pepper steak.

This book, with its brawns (or pig's-head cheese), briskets and spiced beef, its smoked fish and cured pork, its old-fashioned curd dishes and sweet fruit pickles, sounds a welcome, if uncommon, note in the English kitchen.
