Many of the recipes in this book are quite daunting and indeed I do not see myself tackling most of them or will confine myself to more simple versions. Despite the shortcomings I mentioned earlier, I love this book mostly for Debo's witty prose, reminiscences of growing up as one of the Mitford sisters, later being Duchess of Devonshire and the phenomenon of what is today one of the UK's favourite stately homes- all written with food as a unifying theme.

In this book; Debo shares recipes from her mother, sisters, friends and chefs who work in Chatsworth as well as her and her husband's favourites. Having made some of the dishes in this book, my experience is they do work, especially the puddings.

I recommend this to anyone who loves history and puddings!

Extra-ordinarily good read. Although unlikely you will tackle all the recipes, they nonetheless make extremely diverting reading. Practical, no nonsense, and very witty. What more could you ask of a book?

A nice documents of good old time and good old grand cuisine.
Inspirational and nice to keep in the kitchen.
My copy was used but arrived very dirsty with grain, pieces of flour, a little ball of salt, all signals of long use. Moving to see that.
