--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.Read more ›
