Part of the J Salmon booklets on British cooking each book is about 45 pages long and usually focuses on a particular type of recipe-cakes/chicken/beef or a particular region or county in Britain with a strong emphasis on England. Besides the various recipes each book also has some very nice sepia toned pictures of rural British villages and houses.
This is the hearty, good solid food of the north. Far away from the fancy south, I should qualify this by saying I'm from Surrey, this is the sort of food James Herriot wrote about so lovingly, the same sort of wonderful English food that is such a good part of my youth.
The recipes are easy to follow, each one being just a page and while there might be a slight problem in translation form the English (a dessert spoon of sugar comes to mind) this is easily sorted through and you find you have a lovely book to work with. At the low cost if you only like one or two of them it will be well worth the cost.
