A gem which refutes the myth of bland English cooking.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Spices, Salt and Aromatics in the English Kitchen (Hardcover)
This overlooked gem from Elizabeth David illustrates how English cooking has drawn on a rich and diverse heritage from early times through to its colonial hey-day. It demonstrates how English cooks were innovative and flexible in adapting their style to the wealth of other influences. In particular it refutes the idea that English cooking is bland and boring.

What exactly do you mean by 'Tribe'?

Well said, Getoka. Incidentally, I don't think the original Pauper's Cookbook is 'still quite easy to find' (your words in 2011)!

..while the edition you reviewed yourself can't be got for love or money. Even the 1992 edition is going for £23.58 and up, apart from a single copy priced at 4p. It's a jungle! Fortunately Frances Lincoln got round to a reissue this year..
