Reviews

  • A captivating exploration and celebration of the flowering of English cooking in the 1920s and 30s

    Financial Times
  • A treasury of social gossip . . . immensely enjoyable and useful

    Spectator
  • That rare thing, a cookery book with an argument: viz, that English cookery was once both good and independent of the cuisines of her neighbours . . . a rollicking good read

    Observer
  • A book which celebrates a gastronomy which we would be unwise to forget. It's a rediscovery of British food remembered from before the War

    Derek Cooper
  • I recommend it, not only for its excellent food but also for the superb introductions and details of social history in the great houses with their shimmering hostesses
