Product description


The recipes stand the test of time and her writing is clear, concise and elegant. --Foodie magazine<br \><br \>Every enthusiastic cook should own a copy of Margaret Costa's classic --Telegraph Magazine

It celebrates the spirit of each season as much as the available produce. -- Oliver Rowee, Shortlist

There are certain cookbooks I could never live without, and one of them is The Four Seasons Cookery Book. The Proper Puddings chapter is worth the price alone. If these classic steamed puddings don't warm you up in this weather, nothing will. --Mark Taylor, Bristol Evening Post

At this time of the year there is scant comfort, and cold, to be found in a breakfast of orange juice and coffee and perhaps a piece of toast. When the mornings are dark, the flesh weak and the spirit weary, nothing comforts as a good breakfast can - and the comforting glow lasts throughout the day. There is no arguing with the tests that have conclusively shown that people who don't have a "proper" breakfast are appreciably less efficient, less productive, and noticeably less good-tempered than those who do. But the strongest reason of all for having a good breakfast is that if you don't you just won't get your fair share of most of the nicest English food, the kind we do best of all. - Nigel Slater, feature in Observer Food Monthly

If you don't already own Margaret Costa's Four Seasons, I urge you to buy it. I put her on a par with the great Jane Grigson and the mighty Elizabeth David: her book is simple, seasonal, wonderfully old-school recipes. --Thomasina Miers

About the Author

Margaret Costa came to prominence by replacing Robert Carrier as the Sunday Times cookery writer, and although this was her only significant book, it's hugely influential and was named by Observer Food Monthly as recently as 2010 as one of the Top 50 Cookbooks of All Time.
