Book Description

19 Oct 2009
This book provides a celebration of the regional foods of Britain and a collection of the best regional recipes that have at their heart local ingredients. The South West has a wonderful tradition of cooking with pastry and clotted cream, the South East has puddings in suet crusts, and the Lake District often uses brown sugar and spices derived from the West India trade. Every region of Britain has a selection of recipes that bring out the best of the local ingredients, traditional cooking techniques and are much loved by locals and visitors - Sally Lunn Bread and Strawberry Cider from the West Country; Curd Tart and Yorkshire Pudding from God's Own Country; and, Partridge Pudding and Kentish Huffkins from the Garden of England. These wonderful recipes - from salads, soups, stews and roasts to cakes, buns and bread - celebrate British food and specific local foods. But more than that, the book offers a range of recipes that can delight palates all over the United Kingdom.

The first thing that struck me on leafing through this book is its's sheer beauty. On every page there is an evocative photograph or two of the glories of the British countryside and it's peerless ingredients. It is worth buying for the illustrations alone and I have already spent many happy hours just gazing longingly. And then the recipes - all simple, clearly written and eminently cookable as one has come to expect of National Trust publications.

The recipes are pure nostalgia; hearty homely fare from farm and country kitchens from all around Britain, including Scotland,Wales and Northern Ireland. They are just the sort of food I wanted to eat as a child and would love to be able to cook today if I didn't live in in a climate unsuitable for them and where the ingredients just do not match their British counterparts for quality. Except for the cakes: out of the truly enticing and unusual selection I've made Mrs Watson's Iced Ginger Shortcake, the Welsh Gingerbread, Mary Edmund's Date Sandwich and the Apple Cake and can recommend them all.

The recipes as a whole are a mix of the well-known and the more unusual such as the Dish of Cheese ( an Edwardian recipe for a savoury), Lentil and Caraway Soup, Gillian Temple's Herwick Tatie Pot, Ulster Broth, Pease Pudding and Ham or Sponge Cake with Bilberries. Also a great recipe for Potted Beef just like my grandma's.

There are recipes for every kind of meat and game, jams, preserves and chutneys, bread, cakes,soups and sweets. I love the idea of Stilton and Celery soup, Cumberland Sausage in Beer, Staffordshire Steaks, My Lady's Shortcake, the Little Cheese Tartlets and the Lemon Refresher Cordial. In fact I love all the recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of British 5 Nov 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book has all of the quality and content I would expect from a National Trust publication and more. Its really great to see so many old favourites all contained in one work and I for one will be using it as often as I can but combining it with some wild food ingredients too. Luckily my Chinese wife loves British food so we have made a pact to alternate from Chinese food and English food each week.. One to keep and cherish.
