Get yer brolly Maw, I fancy a day oot!,
This review is from: Maw Broon's But An' Ben Cookbook: A Cookbook for Every Season, Using All the Goodness of the Land (Hardcover)
Ok, the weather outside may be frightful but this hasn't stopped me daydreaming about days out in the country after flicking through this lovely book. This is the sequel to Maw's cookbook (what other gems are lurking at the back of the big press at Glebe Street?) and shows us how the Broons live when they are in the country at the But an' Ben. By the way, where exactly is Auchentogle? A funny, charming, nostalgic cookbook, which is even more jam-packed with jokes, strips, cuttings and good old fashioned recipes that will stick to your ribs, than the first one. Of course the other family members make their cheeky contributions: Granpaw adds his wine making tips (don't fancy the turnip much), Hen relates the rules of conkers, and the Twins recommend fresh Frog Soup, served live in pond water. Do you remember making sugarelly water, home made ginger beer, and a poke of sugar and a rhubarb stalk! If you do you will love this!
