5.0 out of 5 stars Celebrating Good Northern Food 17 Dec 2009
I think the other reviewer missed the point of this book,and the others in the series, which is to celebrate the history of traditional foods from all corners of Britain-and in this, the authors have succeeded magnificently. They are not recipe books but a comprehensive and very interesting celebration of culinary traditions. I have no doubt that recipes for many of these wonderful foods can be found online or in "proper" recipe books if you want to try some of them out. This book is a compendium of unique specialities that have have stood the test of time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother 3 Oct 2009
This review applies to all the books in this series - I've got them all- no index and all measurements in metric. These really are quite appalling lapses. The lack of an index is frankly unforgiveable and quite insulting to the reader. And as for metric only, in a book on English food...I'd better not....
