Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

A Kid's Review on January 24, 2010
Format: Paperback
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.
