5.0 out of 5 stars
a delight of a book, 8 July 2014
I heard an extract of this book read one day on radio 4. I knew I had to buy it.
I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of reading, with many passages my wife having to listen to, as it is just too well written and delicious to keep to oneself!
The history, writing style and wonderful word pictures painted, as well character descriptions, fascinating facts, and the occasional recipe make this book a treat.
