"'A magnificent book' The Guardian"

About the Author

Jane Grigson (1928–90) grew up in the northeast of England, where there is a strong tradition of good eating. After earning a degree in English from Cambridge University, she worked in art galleries and publishers’ offices and then as a translator. In 1968 Grigson began writing cookery articles for the Observer Colour Magazine. Good Things is a collection of those highly successful pieces. She is the author of numerous cookery books, including English Food, Charcuterie and French Pork Cookery, and Mushroom Feast. Grigson posthumously received the 2009 James Beard Foundation Cookbook Hall of Fame Book Award for her entire body of work.

It's hard to comment on a classic without sounding self important. What I would say about this book is, if you have read Elizabeth David and you have not yet read any Jane Grigson, then do buy the book, you will not be disappointed. There's a lot of scholarly work here, too, as well as the recipes and cooking techniques. Very British, for sure, and it may even convince you to love prunes (or dried plums, as they are sometimes known).

Some of the recipe titles are so unique it almost makes me leery of trying them, however, so far, so good...even on the recipes that I felt there needed to be a modification, it didn't require a complete make-over and stood just fine on its own merits.

This book is packed with recipes that are historic and well written. It isn't your glossy pictures-on-every-page cookbook, this is more like an historic Joy of Cooking for British folk. I enjoyed reading through it and anticipate a lot of interesting meals.

This is my second copy of Jane Grigsons's book. I used the original copy so often that it fell apart. It is a great book.
