I originally bought this book as a gift for a Beatrix Potter fan, but soon realized I had to have a copy for myself. Potter fans and cookbook collectors alike will relish the fine color photos and illustrations as much as the tasty, and very English recipes. How about a nice "Steak, Kidney and Oyster Pudding with a Guiness Gravy"? (page 50). Ms. Williams, the author, also does a fine job with the introduction in which she gives us a synopsis of Beatrix Potter's life, from London to her beloved Lake District where many of the book's recipes were collected. By the way, if you have ever worried about how to deal with such "English" ingredients as "dark treacle", a Glossary of British Terms with American Equivalents is included (dark treacle = molasses). Book length is 176 pages, about 3/4 inch thick, with photos or illustrations on nearly every page - very satisfying for those of us who like our cookbooks to be pretty as well as functional.

The Beatrix Potter Country Cook Book (1991) offers pleasures from the British Lake District, likely to delight those who

--enjoy trying what may be new recipes or intriguing takes on more familiar dishes. Plenty of choices in about 150 recipes. Cumberland Rum Nickies are scones originating in rum from casks that turned up a bit leaky, fairly plentiful in the near-by Cornish rum-smuggling coast. Hefty dollops of rum, whiskey, and brandy star in quite a few recipes.

Littled Pig Tobin's Spring Caulflower Cheese involves young cauliflowers, light cream, cheese, and mace. There's a Huntsman's Pot possibly inspired by avid huntsman and sure shot, Mr Willlie Heelis, featuring pheasant, vernison, red wine, and beef with red currant jelly. The aroma arises from the page.

These recipes are for cooks who like kitchens, like preparing hearty meals, and who are into slow foods, made of the freshest, most localvore ingredients. Or who like to read about them.

--cherish vignettes of the way of life in the fells and mountains, rivers and gardens Each recipe begins with stories about Beatrix Potter/Mrs Heelis; about the gardens in and around Sawrey, about the inns the author visited whose owners shared recipes, and about the stories in which the good things appeared. There is a lot of eating in Beatrix Potter's diaries, tales and drawings!

--love photos displaying the fish, flesh, fowl, and veggies; showcasing the dishes in settings as rustic as Mr McGregor's garden shed or of an elegance of Dutch master still lifes of gleaming glass, patterned china, sparkling silver framed by windows through which readers can see gardens from her books.

Reading this lovely, large format book is, for me, an unalloyed joy.

I just received a copy of this book. I'm overjoyed at the amount of recipes in this book. Each recipe contains a little history brief about it. The illustrated drawings are beautifully placed throughout this cook book. Along with photos of some the recipes. The photos have a country timeless feel to them. I love just looking at this cook book - its pleasing to the eye. There are even a few photographs from Beatrix Potter's father from family vacations, pictures of the farm.

The glossary is very helpful if you find yourself wondering what icing sugar is. Well, its powder sugar. What's a sandwich tin? A layer cake pan. Along with many more terms not all of us are familiar with.

The cook book has many sections. You can have your own Beatrix Potter themed dinner party if you wish.

Lovely, chatty, with lengthy quotes from Beatrix Potter's letters and journals to show she cooked and ate the types of recipes included.
