5.0 out of 5 stars A no-nonsense book, 5 Sep 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is informative and well thought out. It contains lots of good recipes which are simple to make and filling for the family, with lots of old favourites in all categories. No fancy full-page pictures, but the sections contain information about the reasons behind the recipes, giving a good description of the life of the times. Anyone who enjoyed the Victorian Garden and the Victorian Kitchen will find it fascinating as well as practical.

This review is from: Arabella Boxer's Book of English Food (Penguin Cookery Library) (Paperback)
Really interesting book from a historical point of view - Arabella Boxer writes very well. I am not sure I would make any of the recipes but it is a good read for anyone interested in English food.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of English Food, 9 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Arabella Boxer's Book of English Food (Penguin Cookery Library) (Paperback)
Arabella Boxer's Book of English Food is a culinary jewel. It presents the best of upper class English food from the inter-war period. The recipes are well documented and provide a glimpse into another world, a time of cooks and mistresses - and an era when more cooking was done by the hostess. It is a fascinating, mothwatering read. I would highly recommend it. Bon apetit.
