About this book
A compendium of recipes adapted from the cookery books of the 1920s and 1930s by the influential food writer for "Vogue" from the 1960s, Arabella Boxer. This new updated edition features beautiful new illustrations, and there are 200 recipes which are drawn from the great country estates of the between-the-wars era. Nigel Slater on Arabella Boxer: 'I will be forever in her debt. I still find the calm elegance of her writing an inspiration.'
Describes delicious dishes - and the social conditions in which they were prepared, cooked and eaten - in the short span between the two World Wars when English cooking suddenly blossomed. This title contains 200 recipes, drawn from cookery books, magazines of the period, family sources or from talking to survivors who still remember those days.
