Format: Hardcover
The first thing that struck me on leafing through this book is its's sheer beauty. On every page there is an evocative photograph or two of the glories of the British countryside and it's peerless ingredients. It is worth buying for the illustrations alone and I have already spent many happy hours just gazing longingly. And then the recipes - all simple, clearly written and eminently cookable as one has come to expect of National Trust publications.

The recipes are pure nostalgia; hearty homely fare from farm and country kitchens from all around Britain, including Scotland,Wales and Northern Ireland. They are just the sort of food I wanted to eat as a child and would love to be able to cook today if I didn't live in in a climate unsuitable for them and where the ingredients just do not match their British counterparts for quality. Except for the cakes: out of the truly enticing and unusual selection I've made Mrs Watson's Iced Ginger Shortcake, the Welsh Gingerbread, Mary Edmund's Date Sandwich and the Apple Cake and can recommend them all.

The recipes as a whole are a mix of the well-known and the more unusual such as the Dish of Cheese ( an Edwardian recipe for a savoury), Lentil and Caraway Soup, Gillian Temple's Herwick Tatie Pot, Ulster Broth, Pease Pudding and Ham or Sponge Cake with Bilberries. Also a great recipe for Potted Beef just like my grandma's.

There are recipes for every kind of meat and game, jams, preserves and chutneys, bread, cakes,soups and sweets. I love the idea of Stilton and Celery soup, Cumberland Sausage in Beer, Staffordshire Steaks, My Lady's Shortcake, the Little Cheese Tartlets and the Lemon Refresher Cordial. In fact I love all the recipes.

This book has all of the quality and content I would expect from a National Trust publication and more. Its really great to see so many old favourites all contained in one work and I for one will be using it as often as I can but combining it with some wild food ingredients too. Luckily my Chinese wife loves British food so we have made a pact to alternate from Chinese food and English food each week.. One to keep and cherish.

Bought this for my Mum for Christmas (with a view to sneakily borrowing it myself...). It's a truly lovely book with lots of British history behind the recipes, which all sound hearty and tasty. Can't wait for my Mum to make something from it so we can try them out!
