Mary-Anne Boermans believes passionately that traditional British food, refined over centuries, can be tastier, healthier, more exciting and easier to prepare than anything mass-produced. Moreover, by following the collective wisdom of our culinary ancestors we can both save money and drastically reduce food wastage.
DEJA FOOD is a return to the food of times past. It is how we used to eat, being inventive with the less expensive cuts of meat, using richly flavoured leftovers to create stunning new dishes, making the most of seasonal ingredients served simply and deliciously in ways we have forgotten. It’s frugal, but full of flavour, deliciously different, yet proudly traditional.
This delectable collection includes recipes for meat, poultry, game, offal, vegetable and fish. There are skinks, hashes, puddings and pies. Goose, shrimp, parsnips et al will be potted, stewed and fricasseed into hearty, flavourful food that stands up to the best modern recipes. And Mary-Anne will reveal the fascinating stories behind the dishes.
DEJA FOOD is real food, perfected over centuries, that is just as mouth-watering today as it was then.

Appleby Farm was originally published as a four-part serial. This is the complete story in one package.
Freya Moorcroft has wild red hair, mischievous green eyes, a warm smile and a heart of gold. She’s been happy working at the café round the corner from Ivy Lane allotments and her romance with her new boyfriend is going well, she thinks, but a part of her still misses the beautiful rolling hills of her Cumbrian childhood home: Appleby Farm.
Then a phone call out of the blue and a desperate plea for help change everything…
The farm is in financial trouble, and it’s taking its toll on the aunt and uncle who raised Freya. Heading home to lend a hand, Freya quickly learns that things are worse than she first thought. As she summons up all her creativity and determination to turn things around, Freya is surprised as her own dreams for the future begin to take shape.
Love makes the world go round, according to Freya. Not money. But will saving Appleby Farm and following her heart come at a price?
Appleby Farm is a charming, funny and romantic story for anyone looking for a feel-good, light-hearted read, from the author of bestselling Ivy Lane.
