This reissue contains over 1000 traditional and country recipes, which were chosen from the many thousands sent in by viewers of the Yorkshire Television programme, "Farmhouse Kitchen". Recipes combine past traditions with present-day thinking, and represent the best of traditional British food. Wholefood is not new: good, plain home cooking from fresh ingredients is wholefood at its best, and these days more people are concerned with the quality of the food they eat, and are rejecting packaged and prepared dishes. Traditional recipes are ones which have survived the years, and they are brought up-to-date with new healthy versions in this book. Traditional country skills include: baking bread; making preserves, cheese and butter; and brewing beer and country wines. The recipes range from dinner party fare to everyday family meals.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
