Book Description

17 Jun 2007 Gourmet's Guide
The recipe for Gentleman's Relish has remained a secret since it was first invented by John Osborn in 1828 and no doubt some, whose taste buds recoil at this intensely salty blend of anchovies, butter, herbs and spices are happy for it to remain secret. But as 'one man's meat is another man's poison', the book "Gentleman's Relish" is packed with a range of exotic, strange and downright unexpected English culinary oddities. From Piccalilli and marmite through to Bombay duck, Brown Windsor Soup to Sloe Gin and Samphire, the book has histories, recipes and anecdotes on a range of eccentric eats that delight the taste buds of the English. This is an essential reference for anyone who relishes sampling the exotic and the unexpected.

4.0 out of 5 stars We Brits do love some wonderful foods 17 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
I bought this after I was given some Gentlemen's Relish (ooh er missus) for my birthday and was looking to purchase some more.

A fantastic little read explaining the oddities of Britsh cuisine. Not to in-depth but just enough to wet your appetite (Do you see what I did there. You can't teach people that comedy genius- you're born with it). What surprised me was what food and drink are seen as unusual. The crumpet and bucks fizz for example. It is an excellent looking book and very well set out.

Excellent for picking up and reading a few pages and learning something new everytime.
