Recipes remind us of how it used to be. --The Journal

Traditional North East fare and cooking skills, served up with a helping of stories, poems and great humour. --CityLife

About the Author

Bill Griffiths interest in dialect stems from his PhD in Old English (Kings College, London) and the realisation that many of the standard terms in North-East dialect go back to Old English and Old Norse origins. In the mid 1990s, with friends in East Durham, he set up a dialect forum to collect and study local words, formalised in 1998 as the Durham & Tyneside Dialect Group. A region-wide questionnaire, launched in 2001, brought in a surprising amount of previously unrecorded material, and made it clear how much work remained to be done, especially on 20th century dialect usage. The first word list was published with the support of the Centre for Northern Studies, Northumbria University, and led to a much fuller Dictionary of North East Dialect (Northumbria University Press). This prompted much new interest, and a second enlarged edition was needed within fifteen months of the original publication. Dialect may seem to be in decline, but the esteem in which it is held in the community can be judged by the popularity of the Dictionary and the enthusiasm of the hundreds of contacts who continue to make the word collection grow.

Format: Paperback
Interesting, although I was expecting more recipes and I would have liked an index of the recipes and/or ingredients.
